We are pleased to announce our goal of $1 million for 2017-18 campaign.
The campaign is focused on positively impacting our community. 24% of Glynn County’s residents between the ages of 16 and 24 are neither employed nor in school. This shocking condition has led to local generational poverty, crime, and teen pregnancy rates significantly higher than both state and national averages. At United Way, we believe in a “Cradle to Career” solution that starts by providing affordable access to pre-kindergarten education and continues until our youth have the necessary tools to gain meaningful employment.
“Your local United Way works with local nonprofit agencies and governmental, business and religious leaders to drive collaboration with the purpose of solving this crisis. We are also investing funds raised annually to help support programs that address these issues,” says Paul McKenzie, 2017-18 Campaign Chair.
