Our region depends on the incredible generosity of public servants to address the challenges we face.

Our region depends on the incredible generosity of public servants to address the challenges we face.

Each day, we witness the importance of local love: tiny and enormous acts of kindness are all contributing to our region’s resilience in time of crisis.

We work rapidly with front-line agencies, local municipalities, and partners to uncover the greatest needs, and organize to achieve the greatest impact. Thanks to our supporters in the public service, we’ve sought out and continue to put in place new, innovative approaches to keep the most vulnerable people from falling through the cracks.

The social challenges people face every day are now even greater with the global pandemic.

We live in an amazing, resilient community. It’s going to take all of us together to keep it healthy, strong, and safe for everyone. As a public servant, you can lead with love when it’s needed most by giving through your United Way workplace campaign and the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (​GCWCC). With your support we can address the challenges this pandemic has amplified.
