The community of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Akwesasne and Cornwall has always been a generous one. That is no different in this time of need. Many programs have been initiated to support our community during the Covid-19 pandemic. The United Way/Centraide of SDG and The Social Development Council have come together to form the Regional Emergency Response Council. One purpose of this council is to ensure that Information regarding regionally specific assets and programs are being communicated to the best of their ability to the community as a whole. We hope to keep this page up to date with local initiatives. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if something is missing or incorrect.
