In April of 2017 we began the integration of United Way KW and Area and United Way Cambridge North Dumfries in to the new United Way Waterloo Region Communities.
Since that time we have been operating in two separate locations. Understandably this causes some challenges to create a cohesive team. Having every one of our staff members in one place, able to access all our resources at the same time is important, and much more efficient.
So, we are moving!
During the week of January 15th, we are packing up our Cambridge office on Thompson Drive, and our Waterloo location on Erb Street in Uptown Waterloo for new digs, at 50 Sportsworld Crossing. We’ll be smack in the middle of the Region, which is fitting considering our services stretch right across so many communities.
Any move is stressful–it’s difficult enough when we are packing up our own homes. But moving two offices into a single locations comes with its own particular set of —well—let’s call them opportunities!
While our phones will remain in service for much of next week, there may be some changes. Calls to many of our staff may be rerouted to the cell phones for a day or so. In addition, our donation servers may be unavailable for a few days, beginning on Tuesday January 16th. We do expect them to be fully operational by Monday January 22nd.
