Peterborough United Way honours PVNC Catholic with Outstanding Workplace Campaign Award

Awards Celebration

April 17, 2024

United Way Peterborough and District recognized Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington (PVNC) Catholic District School Board with an outstanding Workplace Campaign Award, highlighting the generosity of Board staff and school communities who consistently give back to the communities we serve.

“Our staff give generously each year because, for many, it’s the challenges that they cannot meet in the classroom – food insecurity, housing affordability, poverty – that keep them up at night,” Board spokesperson and United Way campaign chair Galen Eagle said. “The annual workplace United Way campaign empowers us to tackle some of the most pressing issues in our communities.” 

The United Way agency raised $1.4 million through its 2023 Community Campaign and on Thursday, April 11, the agency honoured donors, volunteers, and workplaces for their dedication to the campaign at The Venue in Peterborough.

PVNC Catholic raised just under $60,000 for the four area United Way organizations during its 2023 board-wide campaign, including nearly $37,000 Peterborough and District United Way. 

“Our success isn’t just measured in dollars, but in the lives touched and futures transformed. With $1.4 million raised, surpassing last year by eight per cent, we prove that when a community unites, the impact knows no bounds. Here’s to reaching greater heights together,” said Jim Russell, United Way Peterborough and District CEO.
