Northern Huron Connection Centre donation celebrations

United Way celebrates two donations to Northern Huron Connection Centre

United Way Perth-Huron is proud to announce Royal Homes and Maitland River Community Church donated $10,000 and $30,000 respectively to the Northern Huron Connection Centre.

“We would like to thank Royal Homes and Maitland River Community Church,” added Lisa Harper, United Way’s manager community development, Northern Huron. “As the cost of everything keeps rising, already vulnerable people are hurting that much more. We appreciate both organizations understanding how important the NHCC is to the health and well-being of people in need as well as the wider northern Huron community.”

“United Way is a fundamental part of this community,” said Pieter Venema, president of Royal Homes. “We are proud to continue to support their work in providing a helping hand to those that need it.”

“The Maitland River Community Church has been blessed and are grateful to be able to donate towards the Connection Center in Wingham through United Way,” said Karen Rylaarsdam, administrative assistant at Maitland River Community Church. “We are excited to see the doors open soon, ready to welcome individuals in and meet some of the needs of our community.”

Serving Howick, Morris-Turnberry, and North Huron, the Northern Huron Connection Centre at St. Paul’s-Trinity Anglican Church in Wingham is intended as a welcoming, safe space for the community’s most vulnerable citizens to rest, access basic needs, healthcare services, identification assistance and more. UWPH is hoping to open the centre in April of 2023.
