Volunteers are the heart of our United Way campaign

Volunteers decked out in red and white for United Way

At first glance some of the things United Way volunteers do, for example, baking a cake for a bake sale, may seem small. But when that cake is sold at a bake sale in support of the United Way, the value of that cake grows. The funds raised could provide a meal for a family in need, support individuals getting back on their feet after a troubling time, or assist a family that can’t afford after-school sports. Talk about making a difference!
