I can’t imagine being homeless this winter, can you? The fact is, sleeping rough, couch surfing or living in temporary shelter is a reality for too many people in our community.
Approximately 16% of Elgin-St. Thomas residents live in low income households and one in five of our children live in poverty. A family shouldn’t have to make the choice between a roof over their head or food on the table. Last year, 159 people in our community were identified as experiencing homelessness while 196 community members were forced to seek emergency support at Inn Out of the Cold in St. Thomas. We still have work to do.
That’s why I’m asking you to spare a little warmth and help me fight poverty in our community.
On February 7, I’m going to bundle up and sleep in my car overnight. It’s going to be uncomfortable, difficult and cold. But for me, it’s just one night. For too many of our neighbours, it’s every night.
So please pledge your support now. Your donation will help United Way invest in proven programs that fight homelessness and poverty right here at home. Your donation stays 100% local, always

Dear Friends of Ronald McDonald House,
Because of you and your generous $900.00 donation, from the London Corporate Challenge, to Ronald McDonald House Charities Southwestern Ontario, families with seriously ill children will continue to have the comfort and support of home while they face their child’s medical journey, together —Thank You. For premature twins Kiara and Blake Titley, having their parents close by was vital for their development…
Arriving 11 weeks early weighing just 3 lbs. each, Kiara and Blake needed to stay in London Children’s Hospital for 66 days. Your generosity is what made it possible for their mom, dad and big brother to stay close at RMH London to focus on giving their girls the best start in life.
As RMHC-SWO continues to find new ways to help even more families with seriously ill children, we are continually brought back to the importance of donors, like you, who make it possible. The impact you have on RMH London, RMH Windsor and the RM Family Room London is overwhelming — let’s let numbers do the talking… In 2015 -16, Because of You…
2,789 families stayed close and saved $179.00 a day on hotel/travel expenses.
Families experienced 14,083 nights of comfort close to their sick child.
Over 1,600 free homemade meals were served to warm stomachs and hearts.
Thank you for giving families more time with their seriously ill children—more time to make memories with family dinners, movie nights and special moments together at their home-away-from-home.

A Late Happy Thanksgiving Message from Blain Martin, Executive Director
Over the last few years, our Association has been working hard on collaborating with others in as many ways as possible. One example of this is our upcoming Annual General Meeting in Ottawa next March. Another example is facilitating the use of our Webinar system by other organizations to help them engage their members.
On a more local level and just before Thanksgiving, I received emails from Terry Dietz, President of Callon Dietz and Bruce Baker, President of AGM Surveying and Engineering. These are two of the premier firms in the province and last Friday I was particularly proud to hear that they had combined forces for the common good of helping local people with their Thanksgiving needs.
This is the note I received from Terry last Friday!
“Wow! Thanks to all who helped out. We donated 1,246 pounds of food and $1,400. Pretty incredible in a short time frame. I’m very proud of all who participated!!! We filled two massive boxes! Thanks to your help some London families will have an easier Thanksgiving.”
