Stronger Together - OCDSB 2016 United Way Campaign 

"The OCDSB United Way campaign is an important demonstration of our commitment to community and to building citizenship. When we give to the United Way we are helping our community partners generate the resources needed to eliminate poverty, create breakfast programs, run after school homework clubs, support drug counselling for students, provide mental health services, and so much more. When we give, we are creating a community that is "stronger together" . Dr. Jennifer Adams
Director of Education

The OCDSB 2016 United Way Campaign - "Stronger Together" runs from November 1st to December 2nd, 2016.  This year, we reached out to an incredible community partner, "Stuntman Stu" and invited him to be an ambassador for our campaign.  Please take a minute to watch the powerful words Stuntman Stu has shared about the importance of giving.
