We do it by ensuring the most vulnerable among us have a safety net to stabilize them today, while working to break the cycle of poverty for the next generation tomorrow. That means providing a foundation, a SAFETY NET, for basic needs like food, housing, or help when a disaster strike; while ensuring everyone has the building blocks for a good life. United Way considers to building blocks to be:
EDUCATION - we want to ensure that today's students are tomorrow's graduates
FAMILY STABILITY - we want families to be stable enough to nurture each other
HEALTH - we want to ensure that everyone in our community has the health to achieve successLast year, more than 200 Companies in central Massachusetts ran United Way campaigns. For more information about how your company can participate, call or email Philip Wettengel at 508-757-5631 x239.
