Seeing is believing for United Way

The Central Okanagan United Way held its annual bus tour this week.

The Seeing is Believing tour brought members of the public to its various partner agencies to learn how the United Way invests in positive change around the area.

It focuses on those people who have experienced crisis or stressful life events, and toured the Elizabeth Fry Society, NOW Canada Alexandra Gardner Women and Children Safe Centre and Tutt Street apartments, Building Healthy Families, and John Howard Society.

The groups mission is to engage more people who want to improve lives, and build community through engagement with individuals for collective action.

The bus tour of the South Okanagan in Penticton and Summerland took place Friday.
