Keeping it local is more important than ever as we all rally together to keep our communities strong.

In partnership with local businesses, we strive to make change happen, break down barriers, and improve lives every day.

When you dine or shop at the following locations, you can show your local love for our communities' most vulnerable people at a time when it’s needed most. By supporting United Way, these local businesses are stepping up, despite their own challenges.

Your donation will provide:

  • Access to programs that reduce isolation for seniors so they can stay healthy and active.
  • Help for community programs and crisis lines offering vital mental health supports.
  • Uninterrupted access to social services that are a lifeline for kids and at-risk youth.
