September Spotlight: United Way of Jefferson & North Walworth Counties

    September Non-Profit Spotlight: United Way of Jefferson& North Walworth Counties

    United Way is committed to fighting for the health, education and financial stability of every person in our communities. This mission translates into this year’s campaign, “United for All”. "United For All" encourages community members to get involved in efforts to help others. It spurs motivation to engage in meaningful, productive conversations. It reminds us that being a part of a community bears a responsibility to actively participate in the wellness and strength of that community. It pushes us to do our part and help our friend, neighbors and co-workers when they need us.

     There are lots of ways to get involved in this annual campaign season and beyond!

    2. Apply to become a partner agency (an organization that is approved for quarterly grant funding)
