Join the movement to END poverty
Did you know the poverty rate in GSO is 31% above the national average? That means 57,000 people and 25% of children really need your help! We’re creating a bold movement to end local poverty.
Join us and support our partnerships that work together to help:
• Kids succeed in school & life
• Adults learn new skills & land jobs
• Seniors access needed care
• ENTIRE families thrive
Watch our latest videos to see our partnerships in action.
In the summer months when school is out, many local children do not have access to nutritious meals and go hungry. Be part of the solution by supporting MeaningFULL Meals this July.
Summer = time for MeaningFULL Meals! Making a big difference is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
- Get a box – available at United Way office if needed.
- Fill your box with donated food items (see full listing, below)
- Drop off collected items at BackPack Beginnings.
