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

On November 30, more than 30 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 program. 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.

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.
