Individuals and organizations who have shown extraordinary love for their community are being honoured virtually this year.
They have gone above and beyond to give back to the community and help United Way to share the impact of its work, and we are so grateful.
United Way also wishes to thank this year's campaign sponsor and I Believe in My Community awards sponsor, UNIFOR Local 444. Without their help, these awards would not be possible.
