TOGETHER WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
It is because of the generosity and support from our donors that we are able to come together to help make our community stronger. Every gift, whether $10, $100, or more make an impact.
Our donors make it possible for us to work with our Community Partners to address the needs of today and tomorrow while seeking ways to create positive, lasting change.
Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life: EDUCATION, FINANCIAL STABILITY and HEALTH.
Everyone is connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.
HOW YOUR DONATIONS IMPACT OUR AGENCIES
With just a few dollars a paycheck, you can help change the lives of many people in our community. It may not seem like much to you, but your weekly contribution adds up to a BIG impact in the lives of your neighbors.
