How your gift helps change lives:

Here are some of the ways United Way helped bring about real change last year:

  • More than 3,000 children participated in activities to develop literacy and social skills through the London Y's Community Schools Program
  • More than 77 women and 135 children were helped to cope with the impact of woman abuse through the Women's Rural Resource Centre
  • Across Languages provided interpretation services to over 5,300 people last year, helping individuals access services such as counselling, medical or legal help.

Thank you for your support.

Without YOU, there would be NO WAY.
