Need Help? 2-1-1 is here

Thank You



Thank you for being the difference.


The people of this region are amazing. Together, you collectively contributed a historic $76,006,420 to help people live their best possible lives. Thank you for giving your time, treasure and talent to make this a reality and ensure that United Way can continue to serve our communities – from Belleville to Wentzville to Bethalto to Fenton to Hazelwood and beyond.


Throughout our community campaign we’re reminded of the complex issues this region faces and of the challenges that many of our neighbors must grapple with daily. But we also witness the outpouring of generosity from individuals and groups who give of themselves so others can have their basic needs, can soar for their highest success, and can live a life of safety and comfort. This is what makes the St. Louis region so special – the sheer number of people here who care deeply about others and want to change lives. This is what is most inspiring about United Way.


For over a decade, I’ve witnessed firsthand the incredible generosity of this region to rally together and support one another through United Way’s campaign. Our community is full of hand raisers who step in to offer help and hope. Thank you for being one of these hand raisers, for investing in the potential of others and for working towards a common vision of a stronger St. Louis for all.


– Orv Kimbrough
