We are proud to have been the presenting sponsor for the annual Mask Off gala in support of the United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin for the past two years. In 2020, the event  raised $51,422 for mental health agencies in Wellington County. There will not be a gala in 2021, rather a virtual campaign will be held asking people "How are you, really?".  We are pleased to continue with our presenting sponsorship in 2021, with funds being directed to the Integrated Youth Services Network. We were honoured to be a part of this campaign, and shared information about the initiative at our Mental Health and Resiliency event in February 2021.
