Throughout the past year, United Way of Alamance County had to adapt to the ever-changing environment created by the pandemic. All of a sudden everything went virtual, so we looked internally at our work and so did we!
- Our workplace campaigns & fundraising went totally online with a new platform that gives donors easier, more efficient ways to give.
- We connected donors to nonprofits through virtual agency tours.
- Our VITA (Voluntary Income Tax Assistance) Program will be going all virtual too for the next tax season to keep clients and volunteers safe and healthy.
- And we held successful "drive-through" food collection events, collecting thousands of pounds of food!
Our county continues to face many challenges but United Way remains committed to RESPONDING, RECOVERING, REIMAGINING, AND REBUILDING. We are feeding hungry people, providing funds for rent, utilities, and supplies to keep people healthy. We are working closely with nonprofits, local governments, community leaders, donors, and volunteers to keep our most vulnerable neighbors healthy and safe.
For 2021, United Way of Alamance County commits to leveraging all of our assets to create more equitable communities and reflect on our progress. Together we can ensure each individual has access to the opportunities and resources needed to live happy, healthy lives.
