There's always something extra special when the labour family gets together. Seeing everyone from the labour movement bring their enthusiasm and positive energy first thing in the morning to support United Way Greater Toronto's 2021 Community Recovery campaign, was nothing less than inspiring.
This morning, we heard from labour and community leaders who all knew that it was going to take all of us working together to get everyone on the road to recovery. With Toronto & York Region Labour Council as founding partners of United Way Greater Toronto, we all share a vision and drive that doesn't shy away from tackling what may seem impossible challenges. Together, we are the movement and we are rising for a united recovery.
On behalf of Toronto & York Region Labour Council, Peel Regional Labour Council, Labour Community Services - Toronto, Labour Community Services - Peel and United Way Greater Toronto, thank you.
We hope you get a chance to watch the event video below. Please feel free to share the messages that will resonate with us throughout this campaign and years to come.
