CORN­WALL, On­tario - Every year the United Way of SD&G show­cases the good work they do at their an­nual United Way break­fast.

The break­fast will be taking place Fri­day, Sept. 14 from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. at the Corn­wall Le­gion. As al­ways, a de­li­cious break­fast will be pre­pared by the Corn­wall Kins­men.

This year’s guest speaker will be Tish Humphries, founder and Pres­i­dent of Be­yond 21.

“Her story is a great ex­am­ple of our Chang­ing Lives ini­tia­tive,” said United Way Di­rec­tor of Op­er­a­tions Mea­gan Bin­g­ley.

Be­yond 21 is a United Way sup­ported or­ga­ni­za­tion that helps adults with com­plex needs stay ac­tive and con­nected to their com­mu­nity.

Through­out the year, the United Way of SD&G is rais­ing money to help sup­port more than a dozen lo­cal agen­cies and pro­grams.

Some of their an­nual events and fundrais­ing drives in­clude the an­nual and much an­tic­i­pated United Way Wine & Gourmet Tast­ings, which is taking place this year on Nov. 24 and the pay­roll cam­paign.

Lo­cal busi­nesses can choose to take part in the United Way pay­roll cam­paign. Their pay­roll cam­paign makes it easy to sup­port the United Way as an amount of an em­ployee’s choos­ing can be taken off of their pay­check and do­nated di­rectly to the cause. By do­nat­ing through their em­ployer, in­di­vid­u­als also get a tax re­ceipt on their T4 slip.

Some busi­nesses also pro­vided in­cen­tives to take part in the cam­paign in­clud­ing free lunches, dress down days and more.

This year will also see the re­turn of the United Way Cel­e­bra­tion Sleigh at Bax­trom’s Your In­de­pen­dent Gro­cer.
