Flip for Change: York Cares

What a way to start the day! This morning I had the amazing opportunity to flip pancakes for a cause. With President and Vice-Chancellor Mamdouh Shoukri, Vice-President Advancement Jeff O’Hagan and Christine Silversides, Director of Legal Services, Office of the Counsel, I kicked off the annual York Cares campaign in support of United Way. This year’s goal: to raise $220,000 for the important and hope-giving services provided by United Way and make a tangible difference in people’s lives.


It was an honor to be there, and I encourage each and every member of the York community to step forward to contribute in any way they can. Donations will support local agencies and programs, helping kids realize their potential, families overcome poverty and bolstering the community as a whole. Our strength is in numbers, so let’s pull together as we’ve done in years past and make our goal a reality!


Thank you for your support,
