For our second quarter philanthropic initiative, we're supporting those in our communities who need a little assistance through a donation drive for the United Way. United Way brings people and communities together to advance the common good. Their mission is to unite caring people to build pathways out of poverty, creating opportunity for all. The United Way helps provide the building blocks for a good life through efforts in three areas: health/wellness, education, and financial stability.
The donation drive will run from June 10 – July 9, 2021. Our goal is to gather 100 donations at each location. Across our 16 locations, that's more than 1,000 donation items. How incredible is that?
This CertaSite Serves community initiative can have a tremendous impact on our local communities and those families and individuals who are in or close to poverty. With your help, we're excited to see the amazing achievements of this campaign!
