Local Events

United Way events help us advance the common good and shed light on areas of opportunity for the entire community. Throughout the year, we facilitate a wide range of events that support our key areas of focus in education, health, and financial stability. We invite volunteers, students, donors, nonprofits, businesses, and community leaders to help us raise awareness and support. Because … change doesn’t happen alone.
