Thank you for helping to end poverty starting in school
BIG Day of Giving was a HUGE Success

Thank you for giving BIG during this year’s Big Day of Giving.

Nearly $20,000 was raised in 24 hours! On behalf of the children and families that United Way impacts, THANK YOU!

With the support of Wells Fargo and their matching dollars, we were able to turn your donations into nearly $40,000. The best part – Wells Fargo – has generously agreed to donate the remaining $5,000 to United Way. That means we raised close to $45,000 in 24 hours!

Heartfelt thank yous from foster youth
Annual Holiday Gift & Stocking Drive touches lives

Back in December, more than 40 action group 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.
