University Health Network kickoff brings together employees
On November 16, University Health Network employees came together in a common cause of caring by taking part in the United Way Toronto kick-off events at each of their participating hospitals’ four locations.
University Health Network is comprised of Toronto General Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital, Toronto Rehab Institute, and Princess Margaret Hospital. At each kickoff location, employees enjoyed a breakfast of coffee, juice and pastries provided by University Health Network while learning about United Way Toronto by engaging with speakers, agency representatives and volunteers.
United Way volunteers partnered with UHN employee volunteers to provide information, brochures and pledge cards to potential donors. They also answered any questions employees had about the work being done by United Way’s network of agencies in the community.
UHN employees were able to learn about United Way Toronto at the community level, discovering the work our agencies do to help move people from poverty to possibility, build healthy people and strong communities, and ensure kids be all they can be.
Reaching out to employees who are working to provide around-the-clock, highly dedicated healthcare to our community is naturally a challenge, but this year UHN rose to meet it with over 67 new first-time donors showing their support for the cause. This is a record increase—in fact, double the amount of first-time donors compared to UHN’s previous three campaigns.
With so many new donors getting more engaged, volunteer canvassers taking part, and great kick-off events happening to help provide recognition of the work United Way Toronto does in the community, it’s proving to be a win-win for everyone involved.
Thank you to all University Health Network employees for your continued support.
