The new expanded chapter of the United Way has announced its new name.

The expanded chapter is now known as United Way Centraide North East Ontario.

Executive Director Michael Cullen says becoming one big group will help the chapter grow in local communities.

He says this new name reflects the larger geographic area.

Cullen says local offices will be opening up in the communities within the chapter.

The Timmins office location will be announced on Tuesday.
