Powell River & District United Way
Powell River & District United Way is a registered charity whose objective is to "Improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilising collective action" We call this our community impact mission.
Extra informationLocally in 2015 we adopted the following vision statement: "focusing our passion and care for the community to achieve meaningful and deliberate local impact."
Children and families in Powell River are struggling. *Almost 1 in 3 kids live in poverty, 35% of children 0-6 are considered 'vulnerable' and 31% of kids ages 6-12 are considered 'low' in well-being. We are hoping to see some of these statistics change. We are prioritising our designated local funds on programs that fit within the pillar "all that kids can be". We believe that everyone can make a difference and invite you to give, in any way you can!

On Giving Tuesday (November 27th), Powell River & District United Way is looking to fill up our Hygiene Cupboard (located at the Community Resource Centre and Texada Food Bank). We believe that every person should have access to basic hygiene supplies. The campaign to stock the cupboard last year was so successful that this year we are only asking for the items that we are running low on stock, such as: dental floss, toothpaste, deodorant/antiperspirant, shaving cream, and tampons/pads.
At home and in your workplaces, please collect what you can this month! Come to our office on Giving Tuesday (November 27th) at 4750 Joyce Avenue (above RONA and next to Camber College) from 9AM - 5PM with your collected items and share in the success!!
