United Way is in nearly 1,800 communities and across more than 40 countries and territories worldwide. As the largest privately-funded nonprofit in the world, United Way creates solutions that build stronger communities. They improve education, strengthen financial stability and make communities healthier.
My sister is a yoga instructor and for years has tried to convince me to take one of her classes. Knowing my community involvement, when the class was to benefit United Way, I knew I had to go. I have been active with United Way for nearly 10 years. Whether it is organizing school supply giveaways, 5k runs, auction events or turkey giveaways, I am a fan. Working hand-in-hand with this organization has been nothing but a gratifying experience for me.
