For the very first time, local broadcast media outlets are joining forces to encourage viewers and listeners to support United for United Way. Learn more about this important event and why you should listen and tune in.
United for United Way
During the month of September, local broadcasters participating in United for United Way have worked diligently to raise awareness and promote the important work of the United Way.
On September 30, all participating stations will ask their audiences to make a commitment and donate to this important organization.
This year’s United Way campaign message is focused on the immediate response and ongoing recovery efforts to the pandemic and ensuing economic crisis.
United for United Way is not a telethon, but instead, an important partnership that will steer focus to today’s unprecedented needs, such as:
- Basic Needs: food, shelter + utility assistance
- Mental Health: depression, substance abuse, domestic violence + child abuse
- Workforce Support: childcare, job training + transportation
