You can help spread holiday cheer to local foster youth this year. We need Santas to purchase gifts or donate to provide stockings for local foster youth – with your help we will hand out stockings to 120 local foster kids this holiday season. Your thoughtfulness and generosity will make an impact on these kids lives for years to come. A big THANK YOU!
If you purchased a gift, please deliver to United Way’s office (10389 Old Placerville Road, Sacramento, CA 95827) no later than 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 29. You can drop off the gifts at the office anytime between 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. We are also hosting a wrapping party (tag and organize gifts and stockings) on November 30. Gifts will be picked up by Sacramento County after the event.
SOLD OUT 16th Annual Women United Luncheon was a BIG Success!
Members and guests raised over $75,000 in support of local foster youth
Last week, 450 Women United members and guests raised more than $75,000 at the 16th annual luncheon! The money raised will be used to support United Way’s foster youth program. Guests celebrated the amazing work that makes a difference in the lives of local foster youth and enjoyed hearing from special guest, Olympic gold medalist, Simone Biles. It was a real treat to see the teens in United programs walk with confidence down the runway during the fashion show.

At the recent Women United Luncheon, we unveiled a video that illustrates the struggles foster youth go through as they approach adulthood and what United Way is doing to change the lives for these local teens. As you’ll see in the video, with your support, we CAN positively affect the outcomes for hundreds of youth in our region.
A special thank you to Light Media Productions for this wonderful video.
