Help! Cowichan United Way only 65 per cent of the way to their goal

As of Dec. 19, Cowichan United Way was only 65 per cent of the way to its goal, and was asking Valley residents to be generous to keep valuable programs alive. The target is $230,000, money that goes to support 46 local programs.

"Cowichan is such a great place to live, and it can be made even more special by your contribution," said Mike Murphy, United Way board president.

"I invite everyone who is fortunate to have a good job to help those who are struggling," said Heather Gardiner.
