CORNWALL, Ontario – The “Change for Change” initiative was started during the 2017 United Way/Centraide of S.D.& G campaign.

The Goal of this initiative is to heighten brand awareness for the United Way/Centraide of S.D.& G with a unique way to generate donations.

“We wanted to engage donors by treating them to a bottle of H20, asking that they fill the bottle with loose change, or donate a minimum of $25.00 to the 2018 Unitedway/Centraide Community Campaign. If individuals donated $25.00 or more they were entered into a draw for their chance to win the grand prize of $2,000 cash, courtesy of Cornwall Tire.” said Meagan Bingley – Director of Operations –United Way/Centraide of S.D.&G . “We are so grateful that we have community minded individuals like Luc Quesnel from Cornwall Tire that support initiatives like Change for Change. It is because of Luc’s generosity that we can continue to offer this generous incentive for years to come!” 

The United Way/Centraide of S.D. & G “Change for Change” draw took place on Friday December 14th and Mr. Trevor Wotherspoon, an employee from Mobern Inc. was the lucky winner! Trevor has been a United Way/Centraide donor for years; he has been donating by monthly payroll contributions through Morbern Inc. He was ecstatic to receive the call that he won the $2,000 grand prize just before the Holiday Season! 

“The “Change for Change” program has the ability to expand; creating more awareness, increasing the potential for more donations, and ultimately creating good change for individuals and families in our community that need our help. “ said Bingley. “We would like to thank everyone who participated in the Change for Change initiative, our individual donors, and all of the workplaces that participate in payroll deductions. You are all United Way Heroes!”
