Hi everyone! We’ve noticed many new followers recently, and we thought it would be a good time for an introduction post for those who are just getting familiar with Valley of the Sun United Way! Here’s what we are all about:
1. Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty. That’s a big job, so we divide it into key focus areas: ending hunger, ending homelessness, ensuring kids succeed, and empowering communities.
2. We bring together many, many nonprofits, business partners, and service providers to address these issues together. No other organization unites as many people to fight poverty in as many ways.
3. Although United Way is a global network, each organization operates independently. We are 100% local and serve Maricopa County (except Mesa, which has its own United Way). .
The kinds of posts we’ll share with you include: educational info on poverty in our community, volunteer opportunities, and updates on our programs and events. Please drop us a comment or DM anytime if you have a question or story to share. We’d love to get to know you, too. .
