Old Oak Donates $100,000 to United Way
REPOST: United Way Elgin Middlesex
It’s a happy Friday for our community when local COVID-19 relief efforts get a $100,000 boost.
“We’re a local company,” says Greg Bierbaum, President, Old Oak Properties, a London-based developer and property management company. “That’s why it’s really important to support the local community that supported us.” Old Oak Properties announced a $100,000 gift to United Way’s community response fund today.
Bierbaum hopes Old Oak’s leading gift will inspire corporations and citizens to step up and do what they can to help our community’s most vulnerable.
“When people see good things happening, they want to do good things too,” he continues. “Large gestures like this inspire people to ask: how can I help?”
To date, United Way Elgin Middlesex has facilitated more than $1 million in COVID-19 recovery efforts to through charitable giving, future pledges, and government grants.

United Way will start flowing money next week to community service agencies locally, and through select other United Ways where our local corporate partners have a footprint, to help them meet increasing urgent basic needs.
“As we care for our families and those closest to us, we see many in our community who simply don’t have a support system around them,” says Kelly Ziegner, President & CEO, United Way Elgin Middlesex.
“Old Oak’s generous donation will help United Way quickly get money out the door and into the community so that those who are most vulnerable do not get pushed further into the margins during this crisis.”
