Partnering with United Way to build stronger, more sustainable communities by tackling the issues our children, youth and families face every day.
Across the world, United Way works to “give, advocate and volunteer.” And we are proud to join it in this just cause. Our employees give generously through the annual workplace campaign and they volunteer during United Way’s annual Day of Caring events. Each year, we join hundreds of other volunteers, representing teams from various companies and community organizations, to assist United Way agencies with a host of projects that normally might not get done due to various financial and personnel constraints.
United Way has an incredible aptitude for harnessing the power of community. Together, Unitil and United Way are building stronger relationships and positively impacting our neighbors.
Our partnership with United Way focuses on:
- Youth opportunities — Connecting young people to their communities builds healthier relationships that help our youth graduate from high school and give back to the places they’re from.
- Family financial stability — To create the successful, sustainable communities of tomorrow, we must support financial stability for families today.
- Healthy child development — The social and economic future of our communities depends on all children entering kindergarten, ready to learn.
- Volunteering & giving — Helpful neighbors make stronger communities. That’s why we’re proud to lend our range of talents and skills to help wherever we can.
United Way supports 211, a 24/7 free and confidential service that helps people find the local resources they need.
