United Way of the Lower Mainland is generously providing $70,000 to our gang-prevention program In It Together. The funding was announced as part of the Fraser Valley Community Spirit Awards May 7. Together with $100,000 in support given earlier in the year and funds from the Province of BC, they have enabled us to keep the doors open on this important initiative.

The additional funding was announced as part of the Fraser Valley Community Spirit Awards May 7, recognizing United Way donors and the impact their generosity is having in the Fraser Valley. At the same event, United Way also presented us with its Fraser Valley Spirit of Community Award, which we are honoured to have received.

United Way of the Lower Mainland’s Regional Director, Yves Trudel, said, “United Way is proud to support the In It Together program, a truly local, high-impact approach that has garnered incredible support from local residents. When programs are paired with the passion and action of local citizens, we can create community-wide solutions to gang violence.”
