Being a small business owner and growing my venture in Waterloo made me realize, and appreciate, the importance of strong and supportive community. That was a factor/motivator for me to start raising money for City of Waterloo’s Fee Assistance Program. This program is available for local children who would like to participate in City programing but who may not have financial means to do so. I have involved my son’s hockey team in this project for the last four years to promote and teach the importance of charitable fundraising in the community where they will be future leaders. With incredible support from local businesses, my clients, friends and family have raised $9,005 this year! The total we’ve raised, since we started in 2013, is now $25,016. I extend a huge thank you to all for your generosity and support over the years!
