SUBJECT: Memorial and United Way partner to benefit the community.

DATE: Oct. 27,2009

In a unique partnership, United Way of Newfoundland and Labrador’s Day of Caring and Memorial University’s I Love MUNdays Kindness Friday initiative are working to show the community just how much they care. 
 
The United Way Day of Caring program brings people from throughout the community together. In cooperation with I Love MUNdays, Memorial’s annual series of events celebrating all things MUN, five local agencies were identified to work with to create visible and positive change. Memorial students, staff, faculty and retirees work
side-by-side on community projects year-round and on Kindness Friday go the extra mile to really make a difference. 
During this year’s Kindness Friday/United Way Day of Caring event, everyone is invited to drop off contributions benefitting the following agencies (specifics can be found at www.mun.ca/mundays/kindness):
  • The Gathering Place
  • Choices for Youth
  • Bridges to Hope
  • Single Parent Association of Newfoundland and Labrador
