Happy Halloween! 
It's a Personal Thing
Dear  ,   
The community is in full swing supporting the annual fundraising campaign right now. We recently talked to an individual who is in charge of his workplace campaign this year, and who decided to write a very personal letter on why he chooses to donate to United Way.

Your charitable giving is a personal decision, and we hope his letter inspires you in your decision making this year.
Giving Kids the Chance to Be
All They Can Be   
"I want to make the change in a kid that the Boys and Girls Club made in me," said Will Heamen.

It all started 15 years ago for Will.

The City of Red Deer & United Way:
Together, Creating Possibility
At the heart of our campaign this year is our commitment to creating strong partnerships with workplaces in our community -- that increases the possibility for creating lasting impact in Central Alberta. Our unique partnership with The City of Red Deer is a good example of this.
Sockey Night in Red Deer Helps
Keep Feet Warm This Winter  
Now in its 7th year, United Way's Sockey Night in Red Deer, hosted by the Red Deer Rebels, was a huge success.

We had 1,000 socks going into the event, and ended up with 1,736. Great fun was had by all! 

NOVA Chemicals & United Way:
Together, Creating Possibility
Last month we publicized NOVA
Chemicals' "Never Refuse to Reuse" charity garage sale and give-away event, and this month we're here to tell you it was a huge success!

Not only did NOVA Chemicals raise $18,510 towards their 2016 United Way fundraising campaign (thank you), they supported the non-profit sector in Central Alberta through their donation of a whole variety of office equipment. Their objective to support the health and viability of the non-profit sector aligns closely with ours, and shows the impact that coming together to support our Central Alberta community can have.
