Tag Out Graffiti Mural Project - @wpdthinblueline @unitedwaywe @LAFWindsor @CstRenaud

Friends,

If you've driven by Aaron's Furniture on Tecumseh Rd. W. this weekend, you may have spotted a beautiful mural alongside its wall. Thanks to the effort and tireless work of Windsor Police, Westview Freedom Academy, Our West End and United Way / Life After Fifty, what was once a blank canvass is now a head turner and another positive beautification project in our west-end community. A further thanks goes out to Seguin's Hardward, Gray's Home Hardware, Canadian Tire and Merlo's Paint for providing paint and other supplies. A true community effort!

The project will be complete in a few weeks, but here are some pictures from the event along with local media coverage.

Food Security Strategy - Stakeholder Engagement

Friends,

Please see an email I received from Tammy Murray, Our West End Outreach Coordinator, and United Way who's conducting the survey.

Hi Fabio

Can you please add this to the next blog post United Way is encouraging anyone to take the Food Security survey to gather data for future programs.  

They want to know where anyone gets their food from and their perceptions about how accessible food is financially, and proximity wise.

Here is the electronic survey monkey link which contains the food security survey.
