RAM’s 2021 United Way Campaign
Over the past 2 weeks, RAM has been busy fundraising for our second United Way of British Columbia Campaign. This year, we joined forces with our staff at Horizon Engineering to help reach our goal of raising $20,000.
While COVID-19 has changed the landscape of fundraising, we were still able to reach our fundraising goal through a series of virtual and socially-distant events. These consisted of Pie Your Manager, Gift-Card Survivor Island, an online auction, a foosball tournament and casino night. The RAMfam also came together to write letters to isolated seniors in our communities, as part of the United Way’s Senior Programming, which aims to reduce isolation, increase social connections, and engage seniors in the local community.
Thanks to the generosity and dedication of our team, and the support from our sponsors, we were able to raise over $20,000!
This campaign exemplified RAM’s core value of fun. While we have fun with the work we do and with each other, we also believe in the importance of enhancing our community through our philanthropic efforts. It is important for us to engage with our neighbourhood and contribute to local charitable initiatives. Read more about our values here.
