Our Work

United Way is the single community-wide campaign that can raise the dollars needed to address our region’s most daunting challenges. By partnering with, and supporting, a number of organizations, programs and initiatives, United Way aims to address the basic needs of our ten-town region – while also helping fellow neighbors reach their educational and financial stability goals.

10-Town Region

Every dollar you donate – and any time you volunteer – directly impacts people throughout our ten-town region.
