Brockville, ON - Thursday, August 20, 2020 — United Way Leeds & Grenville (UWLG) is pleased to announce that President & CEO Pricedex Software, Terence O’Reilly, will be their 2020 Campaign Chair!
The 63rd annual campaign season will kick off the week of Sept. 14, 2020 and will be continuing with the theme ‘Local Love.’ The campaign will show that local love is seen in the action, response and the recovery of the Leeds & Grenville community as it adapts to the global pandemic. Despite the challenges presented to the community because of the pandemic, Terry said that he is happy to take on the role.
“The United Way has always been something of an unsung hero in our local community, being a major conveyance of our collective love for humanity and each other.” O’Reilly said., “The United Way has been providing, for a very long while, a very important part of the net that keeps many people from falling through the cracks into hopelessness and despair.” In relation to his appointment to Chair another United Way campaign, O’Reilly added: “During this horrible pandemic, United Way Leeds & Grenville has had to ‘step up’ to many increased needs, and continues to do so. I am delighted to be a part of that ‘stepping up’ during this time of special need and, together with a strong cabinet of like-minded local leaders, I will be inviting the entire community to do the same.”
“We are so thankful that Terry has again agreed to lead our Cabinet team” says Trish Buote, Executive Director of United Way Leeds & Grenville. “Terry has been a strong advocate for the United Way for many years. We are looking forward to his support and that of the entire Cabinet during this year’s fundraising campaign. It will be tough but this group of kind volunteers is not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get this done to help the most vulnerable in our Leeds & Grenville community.”
