Day of Caring - Blue

On April 6th over 375 volunteers fanned out across Pasco County to tackle 23 projects for local non-profits, our partner agencies and the Pasco County and New Port Richey Parks and Recreation Departments. 



Over 150 volunteers worked on the Prosperity Campaign free tax return preparation program at 11 sites across the county. 


About 7,500 returns were prepared and filed: up 13% from last year. Volunteers prepared returns which brought in $7.4 million in refunds. That's a lot of money coming back to the tax- payers of  our community!!

Peggy, 88, moved to Pasco County from Connecticut 36 years ago.


Peggy participated in Independent Living Skills training at the Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired and Blind, a recipient of United Way of Pasco County funding. 


 "I remember that for quite a while I had some difficulties with seeing things" Peggy said. "At first I did not realize the seriousness of my problem thinking that the blurriness  I experienced, and the ink and color spots that I saw were normal occurrences." Peggy was diagnosed with glaucoma about five years ago. Soon after she was diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration. Continue reading

United Way's work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

  • Education - Helping Children & Youth Achieve Their Potential
  • Income - Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
  • Health - Improving People's Health

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

Our goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer.
