REGION OF PEEL RAISES $144,969 FOR UNITED WAY OF PEEL REGION AND RANKS NUMBER SEVEN IN TOP 10 LIST
(Brampton) - Region of Peel employees raised $144,969 for the United Way of Peel Region, surpassing the employee goal of $110,000.
"The 2000 campaign was an incredible success thanks to a committed campaign team and Regional employees who gave so generously," said Roger Maloney, Chief Administrative Officer with the Region of Peel, and Vice Chair of United Way of Peel Region's Campaign Cabinet. "It was a true team effort all around."
The Region also ranked number seven in the United Way of Peel Region's Top 10 list of organizations to raise the most funds in Peel Region, and received three awards at the United Way of Peel's 'Achievement 2000' event held on Friday, Jan. 26, 2001 at the Mississauga Convention Centre.
"We made Regional history," said Maloney. "Over the years, the Region has held many successful United Way employee campaigns, but this is the first year the Region has made the prestigious Top 10 list and won three awards for our efforts."
Two team awards were presented to the Region for outstanding achievement in the United Way of Peel Region's Walk-a-thon. Awards were presented for the largest team and the most dollars raised by a team. There were 154 participants from the Region, who raised approximately $5,400 for the Walk-a-thon.
The DaimlerChrysler/CAW Local 1285 Award for the Best Managed Joint Union Management Campaign was also presented to the Region for exemplifying the true meaning of teamwork, leadership and community giving involving both management and union employees.
During the 2000 Employee Campaign, employees held many workplace events raising awareness and support for the United Way, including a successful car rally in the Town of Caledon, and a headshaving extravaganza with six senior officials shaving their heads for a great cause. The headshaving event attracted approximately 200 Region of Peel employees, collecting more than $2,000 for United Way agencies.
