Message from the Chair
Thank you for investing in your community. Your gift changes lives, one person at a time.
We live in a community where one in seven local people live in poverty. This means 24% of the children playing in our schoolyards and parks lives in a home that struggles to pay rent and put food on the table.
Thanks to people like you, we are also a community that takes care of each other. Your donation to United Way drives local programs providing resources and opportunity close to home.
Your gift to United Way has made your community stronger. It fuels life-changing local programs that empower critical services for people on a journey from urgent need to independence. Together, we are investing in strategic leadership, community-building initiatives and 92 programs and services at 54 local agencies that help local people.
Your gift helps focus the abundance of local resources our community offers. We target funds and mobilize on-the-ground efforts to tackle poverty and build youth success at the root. This includes providing essential building blocks for a good life such as food, transportation access, housing and recreation.
Thank you for your gift. Together, we’re building a community where everyone matters.
