I am reaching out to the Prince George Medical Community and asking you to support the United Way of Northern BC. I have been involved with and supported the United Way in the past and have become aware of all that they do in the community and Northern BC.
We all know someone who grew up with very limited financial means and in Prince George they were likely to be helped by organizations like the United Way.
It takes many different degrees of support parents, community, schools to be on a trajectory to success. I asked myself, what could we do to make a bigger impact? What if some of my colleagues feel the same way? I am asking you to join me in the 100 Docs Challenge.
100 Doctors each donating $1,000.00 to the United Way would have a HUGE impact on our community.
All you need to do is fill out the post card you received with this letter and return it in to my mail slot by September 15th and together we can lessen the despair some feel when they are out of options.
I feel privileged and grateful to have made Prince George my home for 26 years. This
community has always been welcoming and charitable which is why my family decided to stay many years ago. I have worked with many of you and feel this medical community is the best in BC! I have always believed that the community is what you make it and supporting those less fortunate than us makes Prince George a more desirable place to live and work for all.
Please give so that we can create the community we envision.
