Change 4 Change Campaign

Our first ever… 

United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk is pleased to announce 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. In its very first year, Change 4 Change raised $900 to help our 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,” stated Brittany Burley, Executive Director of United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk. “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.

Day of Caring – August 16, 2018

Day of Caring

United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk’s Day of Caring with Libro Credit Union

August 16, 2018

Our Day of Caring event on August 16th at the Haldimand Abilities Centre in partnership with Libro Credit Union was a great success. Volunteers worked hard to beautify the sensory garden. After a full morning of weed pulling, hedge trimming, painting picnic tables, and more, the change was impressive. The sensory garden supports the needs of people with dementia, vision loss and brain injury. It has great therapeutic and educational benefits and is helpful for dealing with disabilities that affect sensory responses. They also grow their own vegetables and herbs that they use in meals for their clients.

Check out our “Day of Caring” information page to see how your organization can get involved.
