United Way volunteers and donors honored
2016 United Way California Capital Region Impact Awards

United Way California Capital Region had an exciting 2016 as we launched the Square One Project with the goal to significantly increase the number of kids who graduate from high school ready for success in college and beyond. We cannot achieve these goals without the help of our generous supporters, donors, and volunteers.

United Way honored these individuals and companies who are making a lasting impact in our communities at our recent Donor Reception.
