Thousands will benefit from your support
When you give to Brant United Way, your donation is invested locally to address identified priority areas. Approximately 45,000 citizens or 1 in 3 will be helped by our 18 Member Agencies who deliver quality services and programs for citizens in our community. For many of these Agencies, the support from United Way is integral to their operation. Without it, many wouldn't be able to operate.

Posted: September 21, 2015
In awareness of Hunger Awareness Week, 9 of the Brant United Way Board, Campaign Cabinet and staff will pick up a standard 3-day emergency food supply hamper from the Brantford Food Bank. These hampers include an assortment of non-perishable food items, which typically last person two or three days, though many folks in the community stretch this to a week or ten days. Our participants will live exclusively off the contents of the hamper for 3 days. They will not eat out or accept free food or drink. They will be allowed to use up to five standard pantry ingredients, such as oil, flour, salt, coffee, etc., but are asked to keep track of the quantity of these items used.
