A simple act of caring creates an endless ripple.

Together, united, we can make an impact, every day. Through United Way’s workplace giving campaigns, we connect over 1,000 local companies with local non-profits to make our community stronger. Our impact together extends beyond just connecting employees with local causes.

The Power of Partnerships

Published August 15, 2018

Back-to-school time was always bittersweet for me. My daughters are in college now, but I remember how it felt to drop them off on the first day of school. Each new school year was an opportunity for them to learn and grow. Central to their academic achievement was, and still is, the commitment that schools make to provide all kids with the quality education they need to reach and even exceed milestones on the path to high school graduation and beyond. However, for far too many from low-income families, success in school is a struggle.

United Way’s Summer Meals 2018 Program provided free and nutritious meals for children who may otherwise not have access during the summer months when they are out of school. This year, we have continued a partnership with Samuel Merritt University and their Nurse Scholars for a second summer. This partnership is also made possible with the support of UC Cooperative Extension and 2-1-1 Sacramento.
