United Way News: December 2017



Each year, thousands of community members show up to fight for what really matters: a home for every family, nutritious food for every student, access to healthcare for every expectant mother, and a family-sustaining job for everyone who needs it. Please donít ever doubt the impact you have made, are making, and will make.

YOU made it happen... check out the five big wins of 2017.
  • $60,355,186 raised to fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our local community. Join the fight!
  • 25,252 hours of volunteer time spent impacting lives during Season of Caring. Lend a hand.
  • $100,000+ raised by Women United through donations and events like Project ReUNITED and SPREE. Women, unite!
  • 477 people accessed over 80 services and resources during the annual Project Homeless Connect. Learn more about our work in Financial Stability.
  • 35,000+ individuals affected by the hurricane in Houston had a Thanksgiving Dinner thanks to the partnership between Rockwell Automation and United Way. Share the memories.

We had a blast at the 2017 Campaign Closing celebration. If you attended, take our quick survey and tag yourself in the pics!

This was a record year for volunteerism! Check out the highlights.

Thank you to the companies and organizations, large and small, who ran a workplace campaign this year (and special thanks to our million dollar companies!).
