$29,805 for the United Way of Quinte!

Loyalist PR students were on hand today to help present a cheque for $29,805 to the United Way of Quinte.

In addition to Loyalist PR's "United Way Truckload Sale" which raised $18,611, the Loyalist College community donated an additional $11,194 thanks to pancake breakfast, employee donations, the annual Police Run and other fundraising efforts.

Way to go, Loyalist!
