Parents are trying their best, but it’s difficult to shield our kids from the stress and uncertainty of the pandemic.

After two years of being apart from mentors, teachers, and friends, going back to school this year has been a difficult transition for many. When you give to United Way, you make it easier for kids to get back to being kids again.

After two years of being apart from mentors, teachers, and friends, going back to school this year has been a difficult transition for many. When you give to United Way, you make it easier for kids to get back to being kids again.

We’re learning to carry on, but the needs haven’t gone away. Many kids in your community are still struggling.
