March is the Month of Hope for United Way Simcoe Muskoka

 In Community

During the month of March, United Way Simcoe Muskoka is running a campaign in support of their efforts to break the cycle of poverty across the region. “The Month of Hope” reflects on the lives impacted through United Way-funded initiatives and works to bring awareness to the needs of the most vulnerable in our region.

Every day, our communities face new and evolving challenges caused by poverty and social exclusion. Despite the incredible work done by frontline charities across Simcoe Muskoka, there are gaps that overwhelm and challenge too many of our most vulnerable.

To address that gap, United Way Simcoe Muskoka has provided funding to six multi-year, cross-sector collaborative projects across our communities. By bringing together partners from all sectors – public, private, faith and charities – the projects not onlymeet the needs of our most vulnerable but provide a life of increased potential.

“This year, with record setting inflation and the lingering effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the need will be even greater,” said Brian Shelley, Chief Executive and Philanthropy Officer of United Way Simcoe Muskoka. “The Month of Hope is an opportunity to share stories of how United Way- funded initiatives have provided hope to local residents, as well as raise awareness and encourage community support.”

The United Way is committed to funding projects that will drive long-lasting, systemic change throughout Simcoe Muskoka and make a difference for years to come.

For the month of March, thanks to a generous donation from Glueckler Metal Inc., gifts will be matched, doubling the impact of each donation.
