United Way Events

Fun ways to build a better community

In our efforts to come together in a common cause of caring, we present a number of annual events that are open to the public. Your participation—as a participant or as a volunteer—not only supports our ongoing work throughout the region, but it’s a wonderful opportunity to get together with friends and co-workers, and connect with other residents, all in the name of building better communities for everyone.

Make lasting change in your community at a United Way event.
