torontopoliceService members raised $412,400 and counting this year for the United Way Toronto & York Region (UWTYR). Stroble credited the work of 20 Service members who worked as ambassadors, conducting 200 presentations about the United Way to tell their story about why they give, with helping bring awareness to the work of the social service agency. He also thanked the fundraising committee for their work in surpassing the fundraising goal and making it sustainable.
The Toronto Police Services Board donated $10,000 from their special fund. “It recognizes the Service’s commitment to this very special organization that does so much in our communities,” TPSB Chair Andy Pringle said. “The Service’s involvement in the United Way campaign has been very rewarding.” Toronto Police Association President Mike McCormack said he’s personally seen the outreach from United Way agencies as a police officer patrolling Regent Park. “I want to thank the United Way for making our communities and our city a better place and a safer place to live,” McCormack said. The TPA donated $5,000 to the campaign.
Senior Officer Association (SOO) President Superintendent Scott Gilbert said he saw the impact of the United Way before joining the Toronto Police Service 37 years ago working with the East Scarborough Boys and Girls Club. The SOO donated $500 to the campaign.
