United Way Sault Ste. Marie and Algoma District is accepting funding applications for the Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF). The fund provides financial support to charities and other qualified donees adapting their frontline services to support vulnerable Canadians during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Terry Sheehan, Member of Parliament for Sault Ste. Marie and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages (FedNor) said, “I am pleased to continue to work with the United Way and a number of partners on another valuable Federal program that will help Sault Ste. Marie and Algoma’s most vulnerable citizens during this unprecedented COVID-19. I have heard back on what a difference the previous partnership launch called the New Horizons For Seniors is making in delivering fresh food boxes to seniors. Thank you to the United Way and all partners for making a difference as we work together to support each other.”
