Thanking and honoring United Way’s donors and volunteers
2017 United Way California Capital Region Impact Awards
We had an exciting 2017 as we built upon the Square One Project that launched in 2016 with the goal to significantly increase the number of kids who graduate from high school ready for success in college and beyond. Our goals could not be achieved without the help of our generous supporters, donors, and volunteers.
United Way honored these individuals and companies who are making a lasting impact in our communities at our recent donor celebration.

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.
This volunteer opportunity is now full. If you’d like to contribute to the Holiday Gift and Stocking drive, you can purchase a gift or make a donation to fill a stocking with cheer. Click here to learn more.
Join us on Thursday, November 30 to help us stuff stockings with goodies, wrap presents, organize gifts and write personal notes for foster youth in our community. We couldn’t accomplish this important task without the help of people like you – thank you in advance!
