Bringing Holiday Cheer to Foster Youth
Annual Holiday Gift & Stocking Drive a Success!

On December 1, more than 40 volunteers gathered at United Way to stuff stockings and wrap gifts for children in Sacramento County Child Protective Services and foster youth in United Way’s programs. The holiday wrap party was a wonderful way to kick off the holidays and unite women and young professionals around the needs of local foster youth during the holiday season.

See how and why Women in Philanthropy is supporting local foster teens

At the recent Women in Philanthropy 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 and one of our program partners, Koinonia Homes for Teens.
