Bringing everyone to the table for 3M Harvest Lunch week

Harvest Lunch story banner, long

For just $10 you can pay-it-forward and buy a meal for a member of your community. When you buy a ticket for 3M Harvest Lunch and United Way Campaign Launch, you are showing your local love. Join 3M and United Way Elgin Middlesex as they work to surpass their goal of providing 2,000 meals for our neighbours in need.

As one of United Way’s longest-standing events, the 3M Harvest Lunch and Campaign Launch traditionally sees thousands of people each year come out to Budweiser Gardens to help their neighbours and launch the United Way Campaign. Last year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, United Way transformed it’s traditional in-person event into an opportunity for supporters to pay-it-forward with their ticket purchase which would buy a meal for someone in our community rather than for themselves. That format continues this year and we hope you will consider paying it forward too!

Every 3M Harvest Lunch ticket purchased will provide a meal to a member of our community. Meals will be distributed through United Way’s partner agencies including: Women’s Rural Resource Centre and Next Wave Youth Centre in Strathroy, YWCA St. Thomas Elgin in St. Thomas, and South London Neighbourhood Resource Centre, Crouch Neighbourhood Resource Centre and Horton Street Seniors Centre in London.

Follow the action on social media @unitedwayemca and join September 20 to September 24 as we celebrate 3M Harvest Lunch and the United Way Campaign Launch all week long.

Every meal will be purchased from locally owned and operated businesses and delivered safely to our neighbours in need through our partner agencies working in the community.

Join in and wrap up the week with a special presentation presented by Pure Country’s Dave and Rachel on September 23 at 12:00pm on our socials @unitedwayemca. We will be hearing from, Penny Wise, President, 3M Canada, United Way 2021 Campaign ChairKelly Ziegner, President & CEO, United Way Elgin Middlesex, Lindsay Rice, Executive Director, YWCA and Diane Piedade, Events, Hospitality and Corporate Partnerships Manger, 3M Canada, as they discuss the upcoming campaign and the needs our community is facing as we move into our recovery.
