The 2021 St. Joe's United Way Campaign is underway...

It’s time again to show your #LocalLove

Thank you St. Joe’s for all the support you’ve provided over the years to the United Way Halton and Hamilton. The United Way supports essential program and services for the most vulnerable right here in Hamilton! 

This year, our goal is $25,000. We are asking you to consider supporting your local United Way through a Payroll Deduction. Even a few dollars each pay makes a huge difference in supporting our patients and neighbours.

You can learn more by watching our ‘informercial’ below:

Thank you for everyone who signed up for payroll deduction and thank you to our sponsors who offered the prizes below: 

But wait there’s more! 

Pizza  – In December, our friends at Concession Pizza will be offering the “United Way Special” - $25 for 2 extra large, 3 topping pizzas with $5 from each order going towards the St. Joe’s United Way Campaign. Call 905-385-9888 and ask for your "United Way Special" for yourself or your teams today. Phone orders only. If you’re planning a holiday gathering (following all Public health guidelines, of course) or if just don’t feel like cooking tonight, call and order a “United Way Special” from Concession in December and get yourself some of the tastiest pizza in town and help your community as well.

Trivia – Think of yourself as a master of Trivial Pursuit? Then join us for St. Joe's 50:50 Trivia Showdown from 12:00-12:45 p.m. on Friday, December 10th by Zoom. $10 entry fee. The winner will take 50% of the proceeds and 50% will go to United Way. Email to sign up.

Gift Card Survivor – In the words of Jeff Probst “The Challenge is On!”  But do you think your team/unit/clinic is up to it?  Contact our United Way Team and we can help get your group set up with an exciting and fun game of Survivor where you can Outwit, Outplay and Outlast your colleagues in competing with one another to win a cache of gift cards (just in time for the holidays) while supporting our UW campaign along the way. Email to learn more.

Message from the President & The SJHH United Way Committee 

Last year, many of us at St. Joe’s stepped up to show our local love for our community by donating to our local United Way.  I want to offer my personal thanks to those of you who have contributed over the years.  Your contributions have shown how much you care about our neighbours and families in most need.   THANK YOU.

There is more work to be done.

We are asking you to come together with your colleagues and peers by supporting our 2021 St. Joe’s United Way campaign.  By signing up for a payroll deduction or a one-time donation, you can lend a hand to the most vulnerable members of our local community.  Signing up is easy.  Just ‘Point and Click’ on the link below.  Just watch our video to learn more.  Our goal this year is $25,000! 

We know that COVID19 continues to disproportionately impact the most vulnerable people in our community.  I’m constantly impressed at the impact our care and compassion has well beyond our hospital walls – particularly over this last year and a half. However, this work cannot be done alone. By supporting hundreds of local agencies and programs used by our patients and neighbours, the United Way Halton and Hamilton exists to create a measurable improvement on priority social issues in our community by focusing by moving people from poverty to possibility, creating healthy communities and helping kids be all they can be.  To learn more about the United Way’s work here in Hamilton, click here.  Your support makes a huge difference. 

Thank you,

Melissa Farrell, President & the SJHH United Way Committee
