In addition to its annual giving campaign, employees at Vancouver Island University are hosting events to help raise money for the United Way Central and Northern Vancouver Island.
A series of spin classes at VIU’s fitness room are open by minimum $10 donation for the cause. Classes run Thursday (Nov. 5) at 6:30-7:15 p.m.; Tuesday (Nov. 10) at 7:15-8 a.m.; and Nov. 19 at 6:30-7:15 p.m. E-mail email@example.com to reserve a spot.
The university is also hosting a dinner at its Discovery Room on Friday (Nov. 6).
The $60 entry fee includes a three-course meal and each diner will be issued a $30 receipt for the tax deductible portion of the event.
Seats are limited. Contact VIU’s campaign associates Eliza Gardiner and Christine Jenkins at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
VIU’s annual workplace campaign runs from now until Nov. 27. Employees at all campuses have the opportunity to give to their respective communities by making a payroll deduction program donation. Contributions go toward community programs through the United Way.
With more than $33,000 pledged in last year’s VIU campaign, proceeds helped support more than 21,500 people in 94 programs throughout central and northern Vancouver Island.
