The United Way Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington are boasting their biggest fall fundraising total ever.
At Thursday morning’s touchdown breakfast, the fundraising organization announced its total of $3.82M.
“This amazing community continues to step up and show their local love and support,” campaign chair Jane Lapointe said. “Thank you to all those who donated and especially to the workplaces that really played an important role this year. It was great to see so many people back in person and the innovative ways volunteers adapted their campaigns.”
The campaign received a big boost through generous matching grants from Julie and Jim Parker, who are with the Leadership Challenge Grant, and from Jessica Bayne Hogan with the Women United Leadership Challenge Grant.
