SDG — The United Way/ Centraide of S. D. & G. welcomed a group of over 30 guests and board members to the 2019 Annual General Meeting this morning held at the United Counties of S. D. & G. building on Pitt Street.
“We, at the United Way, have the ability to work with the community and our 16 partnered agencies to make sure our finger is solidly on the pulse of the undercurrents of our region and we can be ready and willing to step in and contribute to long term and sustainable change.”
“Our community still has too many #UNIGNORABLE issues that I am not willing to accept, but with the ongoing support of this community and the hard work of our partnered agencies we can create the necessary change,” says Juliette Labossière – United Way/Centraide of S. D. & G. Executive Director.
