On October 21, 2013 the United Way kickstarted a campaign to help bring together people to raise $30 million to help communities across York Region, including East Gwillimbury.
On January 23, 2014, the United Way will update on us on the progress to date at a celebration of its volunteers at the Angus Glen Golf Club.
Councillor Marlene Johnston says she welcomes the “the recent announcement of a funding boost for three years [in] East Gwillimbury,” adding that “When we choose to live in a ‘society’, to reap the benefits of living in close proximity to each other,” there are also sets of problems for which social social services aims to ease.
This multi-year Strength Investments funding for […] East Gwillimbury will help bring local residents, groups and agencies together to work on and solve some of the real issues people are facing in their own communities – supports for children and youth and helping families make ends meet,” explains Christine Hill-Caballero. Community Investment Manager, United Way York Region, in a recent press release.
