Ways to Give
Get Help




Our local United Way Campaign kicks off each August, when local businesses gather for the annual fundraising drive by making donations and encouraging employees to contribute to their community.

But you don't need to wait until the annual campaign! You may donate any time by mailing a donation to the United Way of Alexander County.
