Thanks to Manulife, and the Waterloo Region Record Community Partnership we are able to thank the members of our Campaign Cabinet, Board, and Individual Giving Cabinet for their leadership during our 7 million dollar campaign. They’re just the beginning. We would also like to thank the hundreds of volunteers who are amplifying that message with their own voice.  Together, we can Change the Power of Poverty.
