Tomorrow (Wednesday, Nov. 25) United Way is hosting a campaign celebration at Harris Oceanside GMC in Parksville from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. with a brief presentation at 5 p.m.

Marketing and communications officer Kyla Karakochuk said the event is a great opportunity to learn about what United Way does and the non-profit organizations it supports locally, as well as network with other community members.

The event is open to the public and free of charge.

United Way is an international, volunteer-led not-for-profit organization.

Each United Way branch raises money and allocates funds locally to support its community. Each United Way branch is governed by an autonomous board of directors that, with other volunteers and staff, helps build caring, vibrant communities and responds to a broad range of human needs.

Central Island United Way supports Oceanside Hospice Society, Forward House, Errington Therapeutic Riding Association and Errington Elementary School.

Harris Oceanside GMC is located at 512 East Island Highway.
