Our Community Work

Partnership provides needed school supplies for students

An important partnership between United Way and Staples has meant thousands of dollars of supplies have been donated to schools in our communities for students in need.

Empowering the non-profit sector: our fall workshops

Part of what we do at the United Way is help strengthen non-profit organizations across Saint John, Kings and Charlotte – knowing that a strong non-profit sector will help more people more effectively and will strengthen the fabric of the communities they serve.

Witnessing impact first hand…with donuts

On a hot summer day last month, Tamara McKee dropped by a park in Sussex to see the BGC Summer Slide program in action. Because she works for the bakery Mrs. Dunster’s, she toted along bags of donuts and cookies.

Kudos to our amazing festival volunteers

Every year, we count on volunteers to help power our mission and raise support for the work we do.

New foundation to strengthen non-profits in our communities 

The seeds of a new foundation created to propel forward innovation in the non-profit sector in our communities were sown more than a decade ago.

Local Love for AREA 506 

At United Way, we are so grateful for our partnership with AREA 506.  In 2018, people behind AREA 506 were looking to give back to the community. They also needed volunteer power.
