United Way is dedicated to providing essential resources for our friends, neighbors, and community in need. Preparing a child for the upcoming school year with adequate school supplies is no exception and can be a challenge for many.
With many students returning back to the classroom, this school year provides you with an opportunity to reach out and support our students. Women United has teamed up with three Early Head Start locations to provide over 100 packed backpacks to empower underserved students to stay in school and succeed in life.
Join Women United on August 14th to pack backpacks with the supplies students need for school. Packing will take place in the United Way Center for Excellence in Early Education.
