Show Your Local Love… All Week Long!
September 14 – 17, 20201

We are kicking off our Annual Fundraising Campaign – Local Love in Action!

Mayor Bill Mauro will start the week off by officially proclaiming September 14th – 17th as Show Your Local Love Week in the City of Thunder Bay. Our goal is to inspire individuals, families and businesses to take action to help tackle local issues of poverty.

What’s Happening?

You can Show Your Local Love all week by participating in one of our activities.

Make your donation to our Local Love in Action Fundraising Campaign on September 14 – 19 and receive a matching contribution for your dollars, up to $30,000, generously provided by TbayTel, Home Hardware Building Centre and Intercity Industrial!

Build a Basic Needs DIY Kit
We invite you to drop off a kit of essentials, like toothbrushes, shampoo, soap and socks, to the United Way office at 715 Hewitson St between September 14th to the 17th. We will deliver your donated supplies to Thunder Bay’s most vulnerable people.

Facebook Lives
We will be hosting a variety of community impact and champion Facebook Lives this week!! Tune in each day on our Facebook Page at 12:15 P.M. and 4 P.M. to hear from leaders in our community and learn more about issues in our city, why it’s important to give back to people in need through the United Way, and why others support our organization.
