The United Way of the Alberta Capital Region launched a new magazine this summer to “explore a number of current topics, including: homelessness, unsung heroes, stories of struggle and triumph, donor support, and the latest facts about our community. It is a magazine about our community, for our community.” In it they plan to cover the most pressing social issues experienced in the region, create meaningful dialogue, encourage support and celebrate the successes. United Way is active throughout the community year-round, leading initiatives, delivering programs and events, working with partners, creating awareness, sharing results and more. “What better way to talk about all of these activities,” writes the editor Nancy Critchley, “than in a magazine, unique to the cause and to the collective efforts?”
The print version will be distributed by Edmonton Journal. You can view the online version at wemagazine.ca.
