Tonawanda News — "Everybody did as much as they could and some did more," Klyczek said. "It's, I think, a reflection of the Niagara community."
Klyczek, too, said that without the collective efforts of United Way staff, volunteers, and community groups the campaign would not be able to reach its goal.
"They play a very, very important role and I hope to recognize them this morning as well," Klyczek said.
Klyczek said his involvement in this year's campaign let him truly discover the strong sense of community in the Niagara Region.
"As a community we believe in the cause," Klyczek said. "We have seen the results and, together, we can achieve a brighter future and stronger community."
