At the 2013/2013 AGM on Tuesday, June 12 the United Way's Member Agencies approved a motion to change their name to Community Partners. "This better reflects the relationship that we have with these 25 organizations," said Executive Director Wayne Green.
The community partners receive annual funding from United Way, using it for providing essential social services.
10,850 children's books were delivered to 28 schools and children's programs last week.
The books come from the blue donation bins in the community. Discover Books collects them, sorts them, and gives the gently-used ones to United Way to distribute in the Fraser Valley.

The United Way of the Fraser Valley (UWFV) announced its grant recipients for this year on Tuesday.
Community organizations from across the region have received funds to address issues of poverty reduction, affordable housing and homelessness, and early childhood success.
UWFV covers the area from Aldergrove and Mission, east to Boston Bar. They presented a total of $140,000 in grants to various groups, including multiple Abbotsford organizations, to provide community services in the Fraser Valley.
Wayne Green, the executive director of UWFV, said he was thrilled to make the announcements, as the money "translates into a lot of services."
