"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 improving lives locally and “connecting with our community”.

Dr. Jennifer Adams

Director of Education
