Cowan surpasses $50,000 United Way Campaign Goal!

Our 2014 United way Campaign has come to an end, and we are thrilled to announce that we have surpassed our United Way campaign goal!  In just two weeks, we raised over $50,000—our most successful campaign to date. Our donation will go a long way to helping the members of our communities who need it the most.  

We’re happy to report that this year’s campaign was truly a company-wide event. Employees from all of our branches participated in fundraising activities to increase our employee participation rate. Topping the list of activities were: 

  • Darts in Brantford 
  • Plinko in Burford
  • Balloon pop in Ottawa
  • Dress down day in Paris
  • Silent auction in Cambridge
  • Wine basket raffle in Hamilton
  • Toonie toss in Woodstock
  • Bottle drive in Stratford

Thank you to our hard-working United Way Employee Committee for making this our most successful year ever: All funds raised will go directly to organizations in our communities, helping them reach those who need our support.

The United Way is an important organization in communities across Canada and in many of the communities where we do business. The United Way partners with many excellent local organizations in every community to ensure that the needs of each region are directly addressed by the people who know the community best.
