Congratulations to All the I Believe in My Community Award Finalists

Leading the Way Award honours individual or group that has significantly contributed to the community through United Way through a one-time gift, or gifts given over a period of time.  The award honours an individual or group for their extraordinary service and commitment to building a stronger community.

Tom Weber has been a United Way supporter for more than 20 years, back to when his family owned a hardware store in downtown Windsor.  Being downtown, he saw many of his customers struggle and had a sense of urgency to do something about it. In addition to volunteering on several United Way Leadership Giving and Major Gifts committees, he inspires others to give through his workplace, as an RBC Dominion Securities Wealth Management Advisor.
