A message from the United Way of Bruce Grey:
Coldest Night of the Year
Kincardine Follow Up
We wanted to take a moment to express our immense gratitude for your participation in Coldest Night of the Year. Thanks to your effort, we were able to raise a staggering $18,325.01 (net) in support of The Good Food Box and the United Way and our programs that assist people in Kincardine. This is a remarkable achievement, especially considering it was our first event in the area.
We are thrilled by the response from the community and are grateful for the generosity and care shown towards our vulnerable neighbours. Your contribution has made a significant impact on the lives of those who are experiencing Hunger, Hurt and Homelessness, and we couldn't have done it without you.
We would also like to inform you that the fundraising period for CNOY officially closed on March 31st, and the funds were verified in the month of April. We appreciate your patience during this process and assure you that every dollar will go towards prioritizing the needs of the community.
