OXFORD COUNTY - Libro Credit Union is donating $320,00 to help support the COVID-19 Emergency Response Initiatives of local United Ways across southwestern Ontario.

United Way Oxford is one of 8 local agencies who will receive some of the donation. Executive Director Kelly Gilson says they are extremely grateful. 

"I just want to thank Libro Credit Union for their support and as the newest member of the Libro Credit Union family here in Woodstock, the branch just opened a few months ago, we are so grateful to be included. It is also a wonderful opportunity for companies and corporations in a positive to give, this is a wonderful way to help leverage additional dollars. Thank you Libro Credit Union and we will use those dollars to help Oxford County citizens." 

Corporate Social Responsibility Manager for Libro Credit Union Liz Arkinstall says there is an immediate need for community to come together and support each other right now. 

“We have been connecting with our partners to understand the most urgent needs and determine how Libro can best support the
communities of southwestern Ontario during this crisis.”

United Way chapters across our service area are working with front line agencies, municipalities and other community partners to respond quickly and provide the emergency support needed for the most vulnerable. Organizations registered charities that provide local services, whether they have been previously funded by United Way or not, could benefit from these emergency response initiatives.
