WOLVES United Funding Announced

United Way Centraide North East Ontario (UWCNEO) and SW Sports and Entertainment are excited to announce that the first round of WOLVES United funding for the 2018/19 season has been allocated to seven local agencies working to support youth and youth mental health initiatives in the Sudbury and Manitoulin Districts.
