As we approach the conclusion of 2020, we reflect on the fond memories, the challenges faced, and most importantly, the collective strength that got us to where we are today.

United Way operates collectively. We band together to take on impossible tasks. Lasting, positive change cannot be achieved alone, and we are grateful for impactful partnerships, the overwhelming generosity of our community, and the hard work of our creative UWCFA staff. The most important quality that got us through this year is HOPE, and we couldn't have done it without heroes like you!
