“Hi, I’m a long-time Willowdale resident who has been volunteering in
different ways over the past years, one of which is as a board member for a local
community group. I’m also a NeighbourLink supporter. Here are some reasons why I
choose to support NeighbourLink North York:
1. The money collected and spent by NeighbourLink North York goes to people
that live in our community. It’s hyper-local, unlike other other charities that
have a broader mandate to support beyond the Willowdale community.
2. NeighbourLink doesn’t spend vast amounts on marketing and staff salaries.
Much of their work is done by volunteers. As a result, the majority of money
collected through fundraising and government grants goes to the people that
need it. AND it also means they need our support to operate.
3. NeighbourLink is a driving force for good in our community. They have
hundreds of volunteers that support many different initiatives and assist not-
for-profit groups to host no cost / low cost events. Without their support we
wouldn’t have things like Taste of North York, the Christmas Market at Mel
Lastman square or many other community events that have happened over
the past year. The WCRA has been collaborating with NeighbourLink for a
few years now and we have seen first hand the benefits they bring to our
Please consider supporting NeighbourLink North York by becoming a monthly donor.
$20 a month will support a senior with social activities and nutritious food. $50 a month
will support under-resourced youth living in our community, and $75 a month will provide
a family with groceries.
Thanks for your time and kind consideration”
