Charities

All pledge money raised will go towards either United Way London & Middlesex and/or GenNext.

Read below for more information about each charity and start collecting pledges! 

Four Pledging Options:

  1. United Way Community Fund
    Donations will be allocated towards local community programs supporting the three significant United Way Impact Areas: poverty, mental health and beginnings & transition.
  2. GenNext Backpack Drive for Kids
    Help children and youth in our community start school in September with the supplies they need to succeed! Donations will be used to purchase school supplies items in support of the GenNext Backpack Drive like calculators, rulers and geometry kits and lunch boxes.
  3. Food Security: Pantry Starter Kits
    One of the major barriers to food security for those who access basic needs resources in our community through our Neighbourhood Resource Centres is access to basic supplies to get them started as they move towards stable housing. Donations will be used to support local Neighbourhood Resource Centres in their on-going efforts to ease this transition to stable housing and food security.
  4. Hygiene Products for those living in poverty
    Proceeds will be used to support local agencies in their efforts to provide basic-needs hygiene products to those in our community living in poverty.
