How long have you been involved with the UBC Community United Way Campaign?
I have been involved in the UBC Community United Way Campaign for eight years.
Why do you volunteer for this cause?
I believe in giving back to my community in any way I can. United Way helps underprivileged families and that is important to me.
What is your fondest memory from your involvement with the campaign?
This year, everyone kept asking: When is the chai coming? It is a highlight of the event. I knew I had better hurry up and get the 13 thermos of chai ready!
I really enjoyed seeing the smile on people’s faces, they are here to contribute anyway they can.
What is your goal for next year? What would you like to see happen?
I have already started thinking about it, raising the bar for next year. I have started speaking to other community members to see what else we can do.
I will continue to serve the chai, cookies and samosas. It would be great to have other departments collaborate with us to make it an even bigger event!
