CORNWALL, Ontario – You can support United Way Centraide Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry by filling a Change for Change water bottle.

United Way Centraide SD&G is excited about a new initiative this year – Change for Change water bottles. “The idea is to use loose change from your coin jar, car, junk drawer or piggy bank to create change in our community” said Lori Greer, Executive Director United Way Centraide SD&G. “Your change will create change and have an impact in our community. We greatly appreciate each and every gift donated. Be a HERO – Change a life!” Return your filled water bottle by December 8th for a chance to win. If your bottle contains $25 or more, your name will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a $3,000 gift certificate from Jolly Tours & Travel Carlson Wagonlit.

The drive began earlier this fall with O’Farrell Financial coming on board to sponsor this new endeavour. “Everyone throughout SDG and the City of Cornwall are invited to participate in this simple fundraiser – it’s an easy way to contribute and give back” said Bill Makinson, Campaign Chair. “We are grateful to O’Farrell Financial for supporting our Change for Change water bottles”. You can pick-up and drop off your water bottles at the United Way Centraide office at 405 Fourth St. West Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4:30p.m or at DQ Grill & Chill Cornwall, 1307 Pitt St.
