Celebrity Read

United Way believes that everyone can be a “celebrity” in the life of a child and by volunteering time between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. from Monday through Friday at one or more participating schools during the month of February, you can become a celebrity reader!

If you are part of a company/organization, we welcome you to adopt a school by recruiting a minimum of 10 volunteers from your workplace to represent you at a school.

Women's Breakfast

This special event serves to empower women in all areas of their lives.
Each year we gather to celebrate the accomplishments of women in our community
and the leadership that makes our impact possible.

Mark your calendars and plan to join us and stand united!


To disrupt the cycle of poverty by convening, collaborating and investing in strategies to improve outcomes for children and families.
