United Way brings people together from all across the community: government, businesses, faith groups, non-profits, the labor movement, and ordinary citizens – to tackle issues mattering most to all of us – producing positive and meaningful results.
United Way operates on a system based on the principle that UNITED; we are stronger than we can ever be alone. Our goal is to create long-lasting changes that improve lives, which can only be done by working together.
Remember all the fun we had, and how great it felt to give our community a helping hand? Let’s do it again!Last year, more than 700 volunteers fanned out across the Wyoming Valley, rolled up their sleeves, and set to work helping 35 local agencies and organizations complete projects they just didn't have the budgets to cover. This year, the need is as great ever, and we can use even more volunteers. Businesses, schools, groups and individuals who've helped in the past are invited to pitch in again. If you haven't been part of our Day of Caring before, come share the feel-good spirit of helping others. As always, the day will begin with a terrific breakfast gathering, before volunteers head out to work. Plus, you get a free tee shirt!
