Campaign 2023–2024

United Way of Wyoming Valley is taking the lead in the fight against poverty by looking at the big picture and developing strategies to combat the hardest issue plaguing our community and neighbors. Our new fundraising and fund distribution model is focused on reducing poverty among children by creating pathways to self-sufficiency for at-risk families.

United Way prides itself on bringing together community citizens to work together for change, and we are asking for your support to join the fight against childhood poverty. Please join us today!
