2021 – Oakville Resiliency Fund – How Can You Help?
Oakville Resiliency Fund was established to help charities, immediately during the Pandemic. With the continued State of Emergency measures, and continued challenges faced with the Pandemic, The Foundation is focused on raising more support so we can be ready to act once we emerge from the Pandemic. We will continue to research to identify priority local needs, and will direct donations to these emerging and evolving challenges.
Donations will support organizations basic needs now and will also support long term consequences and impacts of COVID, such as mental health, stress and other health factors. It will also act to help support charities that need to procure services from our local businesses to aid in our economic recovery.
