The campaign was organized by Valynda Foster, Devon Canada campaign coordinator, and her team of volunteers, who say it resulted in extremely high employee participation.
Don McLeod from Devon says the success of a fundraising campaign like this comes down to a commitment to the community.
"When we start our campaign there is always one question that comes up: how much is actually getting back into the community?," he explains. "If you have an opportunity to talk to a United Way representative, I think they would give you an opportunity to see what they are doing in your community and give you a new appreciation of their commitment to community."
