Volunteers from H.B. Fuller organized a volunteer opportunity
with United Way certified partner Kids First as part of the
annual H.B. Fuller global “Make a Difference Day.” Kids First
recently moved into a new space in downtown Roseville and the
building needed some major painting updates, cabinet upgrades and
some storage areas organized. Team leads came out weeks ahead of
time to take measurements and get the information needed to get
all paint and supplies purchased before the big day.
Back in January when we announced we would try to accomplish 90
volunteers projects in one year to celebrate United Way
California Capital Region’s 90th Anniversary, I received some
funny looks and eye rolls. I’m fairly certain many people didn’t
think it could be done. Well guess what? I am ecstatically proud
to tell you that September 11, 2013 marked Project Number 89,
which means that the United Way Day of Caring’s 26 projects on
Friday, September 13th will bring life to Project Numbers 90-115!
That’s right, not only did we as a community collectively work
towards meeting our goal of 90 projects, but so far we’ve gone
over the goal by 25 (and we still have two and a half months left
of 2013!). If you haven’t been involved yet, now’s your chance!

Community Impact Councils are teams of volunteers who identify
tough issues and develop collaborative projects to achieve
specific outcomes. The funding for these projects comes from
donors who entrust their gifts to United Way.
We have three Community Impact Councils that focus on
Education, Health, and Income.
