Women in Philanthropy & Retirees at Day of Caring
September 11

Members of United Way’s Women in Philanthropy and Retirees donated their time on Day of Caring at ALS Association Greater Sacramento Chapter.

Volunteers helped ALS clean and organize their medical equipment closet, which will result in more efficient services for persons with ALS. Volunteers also organized items that can borrowed by patients and their familes, such as wheelchairs, walkers and respiratory machines.

Thank you to the volunteers who came out and helped this worthy cause.

Trevor Merris-Coots shares his reasons for bringing SUW to Sac State

Trevor working hard during AmeriCorps NCCC. He and his team worked in New Orleans exposing old plumbing so new pipes could be installed.

Hey there, I’m Trevor Merris-Coots and I’m currently serving as the President of Student United Way (SUW) at Sacramento State.

I’ve lived in the Sacramento area my whole life. I grew up in unincorporated Rosemont, California. When I was about 11 I moved with my family to Carmichael, California, so you could say the American River runs through my veins.

Success Story

Women in Philanthropy Brings Holiday Cheer to Foster Youth
Annual Holiday Gift & Stocking Drive a Success!

In true holiday tradition, United Way’s Women in Philanthropy hosted their annual Holiday Gift & Stocking Drive to benefit local foster youth.

Women in Philanthropy supporters purchased holiday gifts for 50 foster youth in Sacramento, as United Way partnered with Sacramento County’s Gifts from the Heart program once again. Women also donated more than $5,000 to give a stocking to each foster teen in United Way’s Foster Youth program. Stockings included hats, gloves, notebooks, a Target gift card, and more. More than 180 teens at Koinonia Family Services, Child Abuse Prevention Center, New Morning Youth Services, and Amador Tuolumne Community Resources, Inc. will receive the stockings.
