The defence team at CFB Esquimalt launched its ambitious annual fundraiser in support of the United Way of Greater Victoria last week.
The goal of this year’s three-month endeavour, part of the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign, is to generate $725,000.
Last year, the defence community raised more than $750,000, surpassing its $700,100 goal.
The success made the team the No. 1 contributor in support of United Way community partners and programs in Greater Victoria.
Office payroll deduction campaigns and calls for donations from other sectors will begin in earnest over the next few weeks around the Capital Region.
