United Way Tornado Help

Huron Perth | by Rick Stow  

United Way of Perth Huron busy raising funds to assist with Tornado Relief in Goderich.

The United Way of Perth Huron has been busy raising funds to assist with Tornado Relief in Goderich.

Executive Director Ryan Erb says his agency has collected about 124 thousand dollars for the cause.

Erb says that while the United Way moneys were not specifically collected with the plan that they be donated to the Goderich and Area Disaster Relief Fund, the idea of the 2-for-1 matching provincial funds makes it a logical choice.

He says some of the funds may be distributed outside of the ODRAP structure.

Erb tells us that whatever is decided will come with the input of five Goderich residents who are members on his agency's appeal committee.
