BENEFITING: UNITED WAY OF GREATER ST LOUIS INC
Imagine a mother who is desperately trying to find safe care for her children while simultaneously looking for work after a harrowing divorce, or a senior whose most reliable meal and valued social interaction of the day was taken away with little warning. Thousands of Illinois families are facing similar hardships following the state government’s impasse over its budget.
Our region is rallying to help bridge these devastating gaps in care for Illinois families. Last year, United Way served more than 337,000 people all across Illinois through its 56 member agencies.

- Reliable transportation for a youth to and from work
