No senior should ever feel lonely.

But many seniors will be alone over the holidays. It’s difficult to think about the overwhelming isolation they experience, and the stress that caregivers are under. When you give to United Way, you provide local seniors with the vital services they need to lead happy, healthy lives.

When you donate today, your gift will be matched by Scotiabank.*

Consider becoming a monthly donor and double your impact all year long.

Your gift will be doubled until December 31.

Your donation will:

  • Expand remote and in-person day programs.  
  • Connect seniors living in rural communities who need transportation and companionship.  
  • Improve access to healthy food and basic needs.  
  • Strengthen key supports for informal caregivers, who play a critical role in our healthcare system.  

Thanks to our generous sponsor Scotiabank, holiday donations will be matched to fuel measurable, lasting change.

Our minimum online donation amount is $5.00.

It makes you feel that you are not alone in this struggle. There are 25 people there that are going through the same thing. They’re trying to stay afloat—the same way that you are.
