SDG — United Way Centraide SD&G urges residents of the area to complete its recently launched Community Impact Initiative – to determine the area’s most pressing needs and best direct the charitable dollars the organization collects.
The new ‘Impact Survey’ asks questions about housing, transportation, youth and community services to name a few.
“We understand that our partner agencies assist people from many demographics in our SDG community,” says Lori Greer, United Way Executive Director. “We are grateful for the tremendous impact they are having and we have great confidence in the invaluable work they do. In addition, we also realize there are underlying issues that need to be addressed. In order to better understand and assist people in our community, we are using this survey as the first step in looking for those answers and information.
“When you donate to United Way, you’re making a choice – a choice to support our community, a choice for your donation to stay local, a choice to improve lives right here at home.”
Open from now until Sept. 30, the survey is found on the organization’s website. It’s also available in paper form by contacting United Way Centraide’s Cornwall-based office.
“We’re looking forward to booking consultations and conversations with our partner agencies and other community groups and individuals to continue on our journey toward Community Impact,” says Greer. “If you or your group is interested in participating, please contact our office for more information. Our goal is to bring citizens together to discuss social service issues within Cornwall, Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry. Your opinion matters to us and we want to hear from you.”
United Way Centraide SD&G raises money to assist 13 agencies operating 14 programs throughout the United Counties.
