Week of LIVING UNITED

The Week of LIVING UNITED annually serves as our official week of community-wide volunteering and small business giving. We hosted our second annual Week of LIVING UNITED September 29 – October 5, 2018. Last year, over $10,000 was invested back into the community through Week of LIVING UNITED events.

Week of LIVING UNITED is led by our affinity group, Young Leaders United. Members reach out to small businesses, restaurants, and retailers across McLennan County and ask them to LIVE UNITED by donating a portion of sales during the week  to United Way of Waco-McLennan County. Funds raised from the Week of LIVING UNITED will be invested into local United Way partner education programs. For more information about the Week of LIVING UNITED, please call the United Way office at 254-752-2753.
