We love how our workplace partners continually find new ways to keep their campaigns fun, interesting and impactful.
At last year’s celebration breakfast, we started a new tradition for showing our appreciation. Called the Local Love Awards, they acknowledge those who are striving to make their fundraising efforts the very best they can be!
From helping hands to new ideas and more, this year’s award winners really went above and beyond to show their local love in the 2019 campaign!
Volunteer Award – McInnes Cooper
The team at McInnes Cooper are incredibly dedicated volunteering for United Way Halifax initiatives and with our network of agencies We can always count on the wonderful staff at McInnes Cooper to lend a helping hand – with a big smile!
Fundraising Innovation Award – Saint Mary’s University
Saint Mary’s University United Way volunteers are always thinking of new creative ways to show their support for community through United Way. In 2019, they used a fantastic online platform to host the first digital 50/50 in support of United Way Halifax. We loved how easy it was for volunteers to sell tickets and track results live.
Staff Engagement Award – Grant Thornton
Year after year, Grant Thornton employees show up for community. Whether they are hosting a United Way speaker at a jam-packed chili lunch or lending a helping hand at a community volunteering project at the East Preston Day Care. We’re always thrilled to see their staff give it their all.

Thank you to everyone involved in the workplace campaign – you all showed your local love spirit!
