Here are three compelling reasons why YOU should get involved!

When life takes a turn for the worse, there usually are no easy answers. United Way understands that to get back on solid footing, people need all kinds of help. Whatever it takes, we’re with you every step of the way. Here are three compelling reasons why should get involved.

One gift helps so many

Through United Way, you support a network of 8 local agencies helping people throughout the Roanoke Valley. These agencies range from the Red Cross to small, lesser-known organizations -- like the Northampton County Meals on Wheels -- that promote positive change. These agencies are there when needed.

You help address urgent, unmet needs

A portion of your gift is also targeted to innovative agency programs that respond to new and emerging needs. These include quality child care for working parents and services that enable our growing elderly population to stay self-sufficient in their own homes.

You can see the results

Your donation stays right here in the Roanoke Valley.
