Live United: Put Yourself in the Picture

Learn about the United Way. VISIT A UNITED WAY AGENCY over your lunch hour, Monday through Friday, next week only. Transportation provided. Click here to see your visit options. [PDF] RSVP to Nan Bremer by noon on Friday, Oct. 29. 


EAT UNITED. Once a month, pack your lunch instead of eating out. Pledge just $1 of that savings each week to the United Way. If all 1100 employees do this one simple thing, those 12 lunches will turn into 23,000 extra meals for hungry Fort Wayne families.

The United Way funds over 60 programs that help improve success in school, promote family stability and meet basic needs. Go online and donate today.  PUT YOURSELF IN THE PICTURE.
