United Way hosts free pancake breakfast in Chilliwack

Fundraising campaign kickoff held Sept. 30 at 7 a.m. at Cyrus Centre

United Way Fraser Valley invites Chilliwack residents to its 2015 Free Pancake Breakfast Kick-Off on Sept. 30.

The breakfast will be held at Cyrus Centre Chilliwack (45845 Wellington Avenue) from 7:00 to 8:30 am.

The Sardis Kiwanis have volunteered to cook pancakes and sausages, and the event is open to the public. The kick-off is being held to celebrate the beginning of the 2015 workplace fundraising campaign in the Fraser Valley and the 2015 campaign goal will be announced.

All proceeds from the money raised over the next four months will go towards helping the 28 community partners and other organizations and programs that fall under the three pillars of United Way Fraser Valley. The three pillars are: helping children be all they can be, moving people from poverty to possibility, and building strong communities.

“It’s really exciting to see the community get behind a local not-for-profit like United Way,” said executive director Wayne Green. “Not only do we provide a safety net of services, we also invest in specific programs that are important to residents of Abbotsford and the Fraser Valley.”

The projects funded are primarily for skills development; to help people help themselves.

“The Fraser Valley is well known for its generosity,” Green said. “We are relying on the community’s generosity to address critical local issues.”

The need within the local community of Chilliwack is very strong. One in three Fraser Valley residents use the services supported by United Way.
