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 February 10th for a Community Celebration Breakfast - presented by Collins Barrow in partnership with Holiday Inn & Suites.

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
Mental health issues aren't always immediately recognizable, and sometimes it takes a trained listener to provide help when needed.

One woman calling 211 for help with her utility bill mentioned she frequently had suicidal thoughts, so the trained 211 specialist knew just what needed to be done.

Wow, What a Community!
"I volunteer at United Way to make a difference. I've lived in Red Deer a long time, but wow, I did not know how much I would learn about the community."
    ~ Kathryn Hagen, Volunteer
Recycling for United Way 
Don't forget to take your cans and bottles to Cosmos' bottle donation bins (outside the recycling facilities) this month. All proceeds go to United Way - the "Charity of the Month." And please hurry... only a few days left!

For the rest of the year, jump start your campaign by getting one of these bins. Free bin and bottle pick up from Cosmos in the Red Deer area. Proceeds to United Way Central Alberta.

Call us to get started: 403.343.3900.
