Holland College students and employees have earned the college a Platinum Donor Leadership Award for their fundraising efforts during the United Way’s local charitable giving campaign.

The award is presented to organizations for generating more than $10,000 in donations. Last year, Holland College employees and students raised $21,539 in donations through a variety of activities.

Holland College president Brian McMillan said the college community of 12 campuses and centres across P.E.I. can always be counted on to pull together to help others.

“Our students and staff are integral to the fabric of our province, living and working in communities across the Island.

“I thank all of them for their hard work, especially campaign co-chairs Jennifer Redmond and Kim Gallant.”

United Way CEO Andrea MacDonald said each year students, staff and administration team up to run a fantastic campaign donating personally, volunteering and hosting a variety of unique special events and fundraising activities.

“We are thankful for the many years of support and happy to be able to present Holland College with this award of recognition,” said MacDonald.
