2020 OCDSB United Way Campaign - Caring about Community

2020 OCDSB United Way Campaign - Caring about Community
Posted on 11/26/2020
2020 OCDSB United Way Campaign - Caring about CommunityThis is an unprecedented time, and this year, more than ever, our communities need help.
The OCDSB is a proud supporter of the United Way. Staff support helps to ensure members of our community have access to life’s basic essentials, such as food and shelter, and ensure that community partners can continue to do their vital work locally to enable system navigation services like Ontario 211, a free service that connects people to community and social services, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in over 150 languages. 

When we support United Way, we support those who are most vulnerable in our community, enabling:

  • Kids in priority neighbourhoods to participate in after school and summer programs that ensure they have the same chances for success as any of their peers;
  • People with mental health challenges to access counselling, and those experiencing a crisis can call the Distress Centre Hotline, 24/7, 365 days a year;
  • Newcomers and people with disabilities to find jobs that match their skills; and
  • Seniors in vulnerable situations to get groceries, attend medical appointments, and receive daily check-ins

Donations will tackle the challenges in our community that COVID 19 has exacerbated.

The OCDSB campaign is running until December 4th. Staff are encouraged to visit the Staff Portal for further information including how to donate.
