ACCES has Joined the Uprising of Care
ACCES has proudly launched our 2017 ACCES United Way Campaign!
As a non-profit charitable organization, we are pleased to collaborate with the United Way of Toronto and York region and the United Way of Peel Region to help strengthen the communities that we live and work in.
This year, the United Way is asking everyone to “Join the Uprising of Care”. The goal is to raise money while we also engage as many people as possible - to build awareness and take an active role in alleviating and preventing poverty and other serious challenges that our communities are facing. ACCES plays an important role in building strong and vibrant communities, where everyone has the opportunity to live a good life, with prosperity and dignity. We do this each day through the delivery of our much needed employment services, but through the United Way campaign, we are also able to help in various other ways. United Way funding supports hundreds of charitable organizations to deliver a wide range of services, including after-school programs for children, healthcare services for seniors, support for youth facing mental health struggles, as well as providing food and shelter to our community’s most disadvantaged.
Our annual United Way campaign has become a strong tradition of fun and celebration at ACCES - this is a true reflection of our passion and commitment to our personal and professional values. United Way depends on every dollar raised through workplace campaigns to fund member organizations that make positive and long-lasting change in our communities. Our campaign will include many exciting fundraising activities across all five ACCES sites, and through individual employee pledges. ACCES employees always demonstrate incredible enthusiasm and commitment to the campaign; their efforts are truly appreciated.
This year our campaign goal is to raise $50,000! It is an ambitious goal, but with hard work and creativity, we are confident in its success.
