That should get a good turnout for the United Way.

Humor? It's nice, but not sure where this will lead!

This is all good and all but I was gonna say the same thing as SanyB....they forgot to mention Ted's other son (Brandon)....poor kid, i'm sure he feels left out. Doesn't say much for the person(s) who's responsible for writing and publishing the story. :(

The only problem with United Way is that the president, Brian Galagher makes a base salary of 375,000$ along with 3 major credit cards and a few other benefits. I have no problem with Mr. Nolan fundraising whatsoever, although I wish it would be through a more honest charity. The worst offender is the Red Cross and the more honest charity is the Salvation Army. Look into it if you doubt.

What happened here?

Did the comments become too nasty and the moderator removed them all?
What a BIG surprise!!!
Everytime there's a native issue/topic/event these comments always appear and the racists show their true colors from behind their computer screens.
Prejudice and racism is alive in ssm and will always be!

As suggested I have looked it up. Your information is incorrect as it refers to the local community. Not only incorrect, but also harmful for the greater good of the lives of local residents.

For a better, more accurate picture, I suggest you browse CRA information, showing the salaries for United Way of Sault Ste. Marie staff.

Moreover, every dollar raised stays local, on average 82 cents from every dollar raised goes directly back to the community, 1 in 3 residents locally have contacted United Way for help, and the United Way funds approximately 48 programs, critical to the residents of Sault Ste. Marie and district.

Without these programs, geared towards health, poverty and children, the community is a lesser, poorer and sadder place in which to live.

I am proud to consider myself a Leader donor to this year's United Way campaign; I know my hard-earned money is being spent sensibly, bettering the lives of those who need help. I encourage other residents to not only disregard your misguided point of view, but also to support a very worthwhile and crucial charity.

The Animal Assistance Group is an animal rescue that is run solely by volunteers, fundraising events, and public donations.
We are proud to say no one gets a salary and every penny donated goes to the animals at our shelter.
