The funds were distributed by three national organizations: The Canadian Red Cross, Community Foundations of Canada, and United Way Centraide Canada. In a news release from Longfield’s office, the three national funders delivered funding to a broad and diverse range of community service organizations across Canada.

They go on to say these local organizations will be able to adapt, modernize and be better equipped to improve the efficacy, accessibility and sustainability of the community services and supports that they provide.
