Double the impact of your gift. Help United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin reach its goal of $30,000 and give seniors in our community a holiday they deserve!

This year, United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin is shining a spotlight on the seniors in our community. There are more than 82,500 seniors living in Guelph, Wellington and Dufferin. And according to the Canadian Community Health Survey 2014 – 1 in 4 live alone and feel no connection to their community. The holidays are about bringing family and friends together and sharing valuable time with each other. But, the reality is far different for a number of seniors in our community. They have no family nearby, or live on their own and are isolated from their community.

United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin wants to change this. By investing in programs that improve senior’s social supports, reduce isolation, and help to lead happy, healthy, and productive lives. Programs like the Guelph Wellington Seniors Association provides a wide range of social and recreational activities for seniors with various needs and interests.

United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin has set a goal of $30,000 to help fund these initiatives. All of your generous donations will be matched 100% by the sponsor – The Co-operators and a generous group of donors including our General Sales Manager – Donie Fogarty.

Donie Fogarty – General Sales Manager for Guelph Infiniti, is very active in the community. He is originally from Ireland but now calls Guelph home. All of your donations will be matched by him personally.

Please help double the impact of your gift, and donate today.
