Make Your Voice Count
Make change happen with your voice. Champion a cause. Get informed about local issues. Partner with a group that makes a difference. Write a letter. Blog. Tell your friends.
Start by getting informed about the issues. Many individuals and families in our cities, towns and neighborhoods lack the basic things we all need for a good life. That's why United Way is committed to helping people meet their basic needs, gain a quality education, earn enough to achieve financial security, and achieve and maintain good health.
We are all people. Connected. Interdependent. United. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. When we advocate on behalf of our community and join a cause that makes an impact...everybody benefits. That's what it means to LIVE UNITED.
