Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED. What do these words mean to United Way or to you? United Way of Southeast Alaska advances the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. Our focus is on education, income stability and health, because these are the building blocks for a good quality of life. We recruit the people and organizations from across the region, which bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to get thing done.
United Way of Southeast Alaska kicked off our annual community giving campaign in October. Our United Way community includes all communities in Southeast Alaska and particularly Haines, Sitka, Ketchikan and Juneau where we have several United Way partner agencies. This year, we are committed to putting more effort into reaching out to our neighbors so, of course, that takes a renewed effort at fundraising. There are many ways you can contribute to United Way of Southeast Alaska.
GIVE: Monthly donations can be made through your workplace giving campaign or through our website where you can make an online pledge for monthly deductions on your credit card. You can grow those Alaska Airlines miles while you are helping United Way of Southeast Alaska and our 35 partner agencies strengthen the education, income stability, and health of our region.
ADVOCATE: Advocate for a cause in which you are passionate or for those in need: the elderly, the disabled, the homeless, the children, the ill and so many more who are unable to advocate for themselves. Your voice can be as powerful as your actions.
VOLUNTEER: Are you looking for ways to connect with your community? In an effort to increase connection and collaboration, United Way introduced GET CONNECTED. Visit Get Connected to learn more about donating your unused household items, advocating for a cause you are passionate about, or volunteering your time in ways that make a real difference.
United Way is many things to many people, but without you we are not complete. Your support, your contributions, your participation makes it possible for United Way of Southeast Alaska to support our partner agencies, to develop programs to help children be successful readers and to advocate for change. We are asking employers to host a United Way of Southeast Alaska workplace campaign, and asking individuals to make a personal pledge to provide health, income and educational opportunities throughout our communities. Your pledge signifies your commitment of our communities' call, to LIVE UNITED.
