They demonstrate their strong commitment to our communities and work hard to raise funds to support the United Way and the work they do to improve the quality of life for people in need."

Funds will go to support United Way agencies and programs that address the needs of communities they service with the mission to improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.
