The United Way of Winnipeg has kicked off a multi-project crowdfunding drive, helping to raise funds for everything from kids’ play equipment, to furniture, sewing machines and computers.
Make It Happen is a four-week campaign that asks Winnipeggers to pitch in to make a difference in the lives of people who use family resource centres.
“Across Winnipeg, families turn to family resource centres for help every single day,” said Ayn Wilcox, chair of United Way of Winnipeg’s 50th anniversary committee.
“And these resource centres need things to keep going. These are ordinary things that help make an extraordinary difference in the lives of thousands of Winnipeg kids and families — and they’re things that are difficult to get without each of us pitching in.”
The projects to be funded can be viewed online, where donations can also be made securely.
