Niagara Health employees raise $78,714 for United Way

Compassion, optimism and a commitment to achieving ambitious results. All of these things haven proven to be key components of another successful employee-giving campaign. 

Niagara Health employees proudly raised $78,714 during our United Way Workplace campaign in October.

In addition to the generous one-time donations and payroll deductions, staff placed change jars on their units and purchased “A Healthier Niagara Starts Here” T-shirts to wear on Dress Down Fridays to show their support.

A highlight was a Gift Card Mania Draw that was held on the last day of the campaign. Employees were entered into a draw for a chance to win one of 14 gift cards, which were generously donated by our compassionate team members and community supporters.

Our campaign committee put a lot of heart into creating another fun and successful campaign that will have a positive impact on our community. Donations are continuing to come in which shows the level of enthusiasm and support across the organization.

“I am so proud of our caring team and our culture of philanthropy here at Niagara Health,” says Suzanne Johnston, Niagara Health President and Co-Chair of the Niagara Health workplace campaign. “Every dollar we raised came directly from our caring and compassionate team of staff, physicians, volunteers and supports essential programs and services in our community, many of them partners in care. We continue to build upon the success of the 2016 campaign, which inspired our theme of “getting better, every year.”

The campaign raised $3,000 more than last year.
