Move Over Black Friday, Stay Out of the Way Cyber Monday...
Dear  ,     
Make way for Giving Tuesday.

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving, fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. This world-wide initiative to encourage people to give back is something we can all get behind!

Last year, we launched a gift catalogue that allows donors to define where they want their donation directed. Whether you make a donation to United Way or any other registered charity, we hope you make a positive decision to give, and then encourage others to do the same.

So, on November 29th, consider taking part in #givingtuesday, and let us know @UnitedWayCA.

Scott Builders & United Way:
Together, Creating Possibility

Scott Builders is a community oriented employer: they believe that not everyone has a community, but everyone deserves one, and that was evident in hosting us for their Kick-off. The inspiring video they submitted for our United Way Kick-Off in September highlights that community-minded spirit.
Why School Food Programs Matter

Continuing a Tradition of Good Taste 
What happens when you fill a room full of Scotch enthusiasts, bagpipes and kilts? Well, you have one heck of a "fun-raising" event!

Which event? Well, the 6th Annual Scotch Classic, of course.

Attention Healthcare Providers
& Caregivers: Help Starts Here

The winter holiday season is particularly challenging for many because of the additional financial needs that cold weather and holiday gifts bring. It can also be the saddest time of the year for those without family or friends to share it with. While there may be additional help available, many don't know where to find it. That's where 211 can help.
