COVID-19 is ravaging the world and while we are all currently locked at home, we are anxious to do our part to help heal our community. Here in the London area, issues surrounding mental health, homelessness and poverty are at a tipping point. In order to give back and help our community flourish, this virtual gala telethon aims to connect everyone – from students to professionals to artists to families and everyone in between, all while raising much needed funds for Youth Opportunities Unlimited.
This event is all about; BEING POSITIVE, HOMELESSNESS & MENTAL HEALTH
London Gives Back is the collaboration of Brett Lucier (Provincial Glass / Fight to End) and Christiena Healey (The Healls Initiative) as they sought an opportunity to pool their resources and shine a light on the issues facing our community. The proceeds from this fundraiser will support the highest priority needs of YOU. Due to COVID-19 restraints, their current needs are tied to essential services that they are offering on the frontlines right now – food and basic needs, housing and homelessness prevention and wraparound supports for youth.
