The United Way
In communities across America, 1350 United Ways improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of their communities. Because of the uniqueness of each community, the issues that United Ways address are determined on a local level. Although priorities for the United Way are set locally, common themes include: helping children succeed, strengthening and supporting families and promoting self-sufficiency. As is evident by our list of agencies supported, United Way of Schuyler County is striving to address and embrace these themes.
