Eliminate the ache from hunger by providing meals to a hungry child over the weekend through the United Way Backpack Program.
Provide a container of healthy snacks for the teacher to offer to low-income students who have none. You’re keeping kids smiling, minds sharp and them focused on their bright futures.
Children from low-income families start Kindergarten 12-14 months behind their peers. Level the playing field for children living in poverty by sponsoring a portion of a pre-school scholarship for an at-risk child.
Without a place to go after school, kids end up home alone. Afterschool programs not only provide a safe place, but also offer homework guidance, activities to grow the mind and caring adults to ask how their day was.

No one deserves to sleep outside. Help men, women, and children have a warm place to stay for one night at United Way's Emergency Homeless Shelter and link them to services.
Malnutrition can darken the mind of a developing child. Ease the burden by providing three meals a day and a whole lot of hope to a struggling family of four.

Provide a struggling family of four a night of shelter, safety, and case management in crisis situations.
