Show Your Local Love Day

Thank you

Our first-ever Show Your Local Love Day was an incredible success! Whether you volunteered, made a gift or helped spread the word on social media, you showed what is possible when Greater Toronto comes together to tackle #UNIGNORABLE issues.

Thanks to supporters like you:

  • 500 volunteers showed their local love at 30 activations across Peel, Toronto and York Region
  • 1,500 volunteer hours were contributed to community
  • $20,000 was raised as part of a 24-hour gift match

With a kick-off like that, we know this year’s United Way community fundraising campaign will be even more incredible. And your effort goes a long way for people like Marissa –a young woman whose life was transformed thanks to supporters like you.


“This United Way-supported program made me feel empowered by showing me that women don’t have to look or act a certain way. It has inspired me to become a leader in my school —and my community.”

—Marissa, program participant
