Why get involved with the United Way?

  • Because giving a dollar today towards a child's education will save our communities much more tomorrow.
  • Because volunteering today spreads the value of caring for a better community tomorrow.
  • Because acting today allows us to apply our transferable skills to a cause that's helping children and seniors in our community have a brighter tomorrow.

Because change starts here.

Supervisors: supporting volunteers from your department is much appreciated.
