The names of these organizations will be officially announced on Tuesday at City Hall. Executive Director of the United Way for Southwestern Alberta, Janelle Marietta-Vasquez spoke about the types of programs that are attractive to the United Way.
"This year there's been a huge focus on Indigenous programming. So, ensuring that we are staying true to the traditions that are needed, and that the right people are running those programs."
Vasquez says one in five people will be funded by a United Way program in their lifetime.
