Giving Tuesday 2018

Tuesday November 27 is "Giving Tuesday" 2018! Your dollars can create new opportunities in the lives of those right here in our community. Making a one time gift or a recurring contribution to United Way of Lancaster County will go towards supporting the 16 local nonprofit partner agencies that we currently provide funding to as well as our own programs such as the Lancaster Area Coalition for the Homeless. This #GivingTuesday is your opportunity to give a gift that makes a difference.

We could not have brought it all together without you, so thank you for showing what it means to LIVE UNITED!

Celebrate Volunteering in April

Recently, I had the opportunity to participate in the Statesman Journal's question & answer session with local nonprofit leaders. The Statesman recognizes that the work done by nonprofits ripples through the community to provide long-lasting change, and more importantly - hope. While some might get discouraged by the complexity of the issues we face as a community, I know we can make a real difference individually and collectively.

Measuring Volunteer Impact

Children entering their first years of regular schooling have to be prepared to interact with other children, control themselves, and cooperate with their peers. Skills like these cannot be learned until children take their first steps into kindergarten. Programs provide children with opportunities to play and learn with other kids outside of a school environment.
