Uniway Welcomes Bushels of Hope

Changes are coming to the way the United Way of Chatham-Kent administers the Bushels of Hope program.

David Drouillard, director of resource development at the United Way, says for the past seven years, it’s been a fundraising strategy and an awareness campaign.┬áNow it’s a full scale program.

“The focus and effort was on bringing in dollars from the ag community,” says Droulliard. “We’re moving it from being purely a fundraising strategy to a program now means we can take those dollars and direct them back into the community.”

Drouillard says there won’t be any changes to how people donate to Bushels of Hope.
