United Way executive director Brittany Burley with George Karamilev of Domino’s Pizza
United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk has announced the results of their first ever Change 4 Change campaign.
In the month of November, five local restaurants donated $1 from every sale of their feature item to United Way’s Change 4 Change campaign, raising $900 to help the community.
Participating restaurants included Domino’s Pizza Simcoe, Ferrera, Kaley’s Restaurant, The Barrel, and The Blue Elephant. The premise of the Change 4 Change campaign is that the donation of your change (or $1) is enough to create positive change in our community because every dollar makes a difference.
“This was our first year running Change 4 Change and I’m really pleased with the results,” said Executive Director Brittany Burley.
“We are grateful to the restaurants that we had on board from Simcoe and hope to be able to expand Change 4 Change across the rest of Norfolk and Haldimand Counties in 2019. We heard great feedback from this year’s participants and plan to implement that feedback to make next year’s Change 4 Change campaign even better.
“Most importantly, I’d like to extend a big thank you to The Blue Elephant, The Barrel, Kaley’s Restaurant, Ferrera, Domino’s Pizza Simcoe, and all of the customers who made the decision to support us through their purchases.”
Every dollar provides opportunities to improve lives and build healthy communities. For anyone interested in making a donation to support United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk, please contact United Way at 519-426-5660, in person at 23 Argyle Street in Simcoe, or online at www.unitedwayhn.on.ca.
If you are a restaurant interested in participating in Change 4 Change next year, please notify United Way.
