United FIVE Funding Announcement Benefits Children & Youth

United Way Centraide North East Ontario (UWCNEO) and SW Sports and Entertainment took to the court at Monday night’s game to formally recognize the seven recipient organizations who have been selected to receive funding grants through the United FIVE electronic 50/50 raffle.

“The partnership between the Sudbury FIVE and United Way helps to ensure that accessible, community-based programs are available to leverage opportunities for children and youth in our community,” says Michael Cullen, Executive Director with UWCNEO. “In December, we announced this new partnership with a shared desire to do even more to ensure that youth and youth mental health-related programs and services are available, locally. Thanks to the generosity of the FIVE fans, and the hard work of our volunteers, we are here today celebrating this investment.”
