The Early Bird Gets the Hot Buffet Breakfast
Dear  ,     

Need a reason to connect with like-minded organizations? United Way has a strong network of supporters who are gathering together on Friday, February 9th for a Community Celebration Breakfast - presented by Collins Barrow in partnership with Holiday Inn & Suites and Olymel.

The early bird gets the worm, or in this case, a hot breakfast buffet!

You've done the work of raising money and awareness in the community; now it's time to sit back and hear the impact that your donations are making and celebrate some outstanding contributions.

Tickets are $15. Get yours today. 
211 is Listening
    
February 11th (2-11) is National 211 Day in Canada. This year, 211 Day falls on a Sunday. Why not share your knowledge of this powerful Community Navigator with at least one friend or family member? If you are a service provider, tell a colleague how useful 211 is. If you know newcomers to Canada, connect them to 211 and its many resources available in their mother tongue.  


Imagine a Life of Poverty
    
We live in one of the most prosperous regions in North America. Still, more than 5,900 or 13% of families in Red Deer live in poverty. With the recent economic conditions we know these numbers have climbed.

We invite you to take a bold step. Put yourself in the shoes of someone living in poverty. Take part in a powerful experience.
 
 
Wow, What a Community!
 
We wanted to send out a huge THANK YOU to the employees at Alberta Health Services.
