Thank you for leading by example and investing in your community.
As Campaign Chair, I had the honour of meeting many people, from all walks of life, who believe in building a better community for everyone and who gave generously to help their neighbours. People like you. Because of your commitment, passion and generosity – possibilities and opportunities have been created for thousands of people. Whether it’s a child newly arrived in our community and settling into a new school, a youth whose mentor is helping them stay in school, a dad receiving support to get back into the workforce, or a senior who is able to stay in her own home – it is you who makes the difference. And when we all come together, that difference in people’s lives becomes lasting change for our whole community.
Thank you for igniting possibility!
