On February 17th I will be participating in the United Way of Peel’s signature event, “the Longest Night”. More than 222,000 people in Peel Region are experiencing poverty and struggling to afford housing. With a wait list of 12,077, Peel has one of the longest social housing wait lists in the country. In our community, homelessness looks different - some families and individuals who lose their homes are turning to their cars for shelter. This event is aimed at creating awareness of homelessness and poverty in the community.
I am hoping that you can support me by making a pledge Here
. The funds that I raise will be going to the United Way of Peel Region Community Fund which is aimed at providing food security, emergency shelter, transitional housing and other support to people in the community living in poverty.
I appreciate any support you provide this event.
Together we can all make a positive difference in the lives of others!
