Leading with Love

Issues like food insecurity, social isolation, and lack of transportation are all issues that seniors struggle with during the best of times. Now, these challenges have significantly worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Seniors are one of the most vulnerable populations even before the global pandemic. Your donation during this time of crisis will:

  • Support programs that improve the well-being of seniors and foster their social inclusion and connection

  • Bolster services that provide basic needs like food and personal protective equipment

  • Connect seniors living in rural communities who often lack transportation or regular interaction with neighbours

Vulnerable seniors in our communities need your support more than ever.

Show your local love and support the most vulnerable people at a time when it’s needed most.

Our minimum online donation amount is $5.00.

Your donation is in good hands.

We invest your gift in smart, strategic ways, to ultimately move the needle. This is the power of United Way East Ontario.
