Local Love

What does local love look like transparent

Local love is every act that we do to make our region just a little bit better. It’s lending a hand to someone in need. It’s posting a photo of our beautiful communities. It’s organizing a volunteer event with your friends.

United Way Simcoe Muskoka is dedicated to spreading local love throughout our communities. We do it through raising awareness of local issues and making them #UNIGNORABLE. We do it by funding critical programs from Huntsville to the Town of Blue Mountains to Bradford. We do it by highlighting great members and organizations that are doing great work right here at home. Most importantly, we do it by filling the gaps and making sure no one has to face poverty alone.
