Hope for Our Kids

Every child matters!”

For many years the United Way of Bruce Grey partnered with Bruce Grey Child and Family Services (BGCFS), to provide funding to the BGCFS Foundation since its inception, and prior to that, to the Children’s Aid Societies serving both Bruce and Grey. Together, we helped the most vulnerable children and families in our region.  In 2017, we were thrilled to announce that our role in this existing partnership expanded to include important fundraising duties previously accomplished by the BGCFS Foundation.

With the dedicated commitment and generosity of our donors, the United Way is dedicated to providing emergency support for vulnerable children and families in Bruce-Grey. Our expanded role will require raising additional funds to specifically support the children in our community who are associated with BGCFS to provide access to emergency food, safety equipment, winter outerwear, summer camp fees and other required supports when and where they are needed. As well, we will be able to not only address the symptoms of the problems in Bruce-Grey, but to also understand the root causes and set priorities to address them.

In 2018, thanks to the generosity of our donors to our Hope for Our Kids Fund, 177 children attended summer camp, 801 children received a full set of winter wear and boots and 360 families received emergency food supplies. From the bottom of our hearts – thank you!

We are humbled by the loyal support provided by the donors in our community. Donors like you are making a real difference in the lives of the most vulnerable children in Bruce-Grey. Thank you for your care and kindness. To continue this important work, we need your help and hope to earn your trust and continuing support.
