United Way of Central Minnesota supports Always United, a program that directly addresses the older adult workforce population in our communities. By working with our workplace giving businesses, we are able to create a transition-type program for retirees who wish to remain tethered to our cause and efforts. It’s both an opportunity for individuals to participate in volunteer projects and support programs vital to the entire community. From a company’s perspective, it’s a chance to continue to reward loyalty and culture even through retirement. Our goal is always to ensure our volunteers and supporters know of the opportunities presented and how we can best raise our hands together to continue to advocate and create change.
