Thursday, June 17th from 4-6:30pm, the United Way of Treasure Valley's Women United group will be collecting items for our Homeless Student Basic Needs Pantry.

What brought you to United Way?  I grew up with divorced parents. I had a mother who worked hard to support us and a father who didn't pay child support for a while. I know what it's like to be hungry as a small child. My mother sacrificed a lot and in the end, my father got his act together. However, that is an era on my life that I wouldn't wish on anyone. I wanted to be a part of the solution to meeting basic needs in our local community.   How long and in what capacity have you been involved? I began attending Women United events in 2018...

In the spring of 2020, many nonprofit organizations were faced with challenges they had never anticipated facing. United Way of Treasure Valley decided to loosen parameters during our grant season to allow our funded partners flexibility and autonomy with the dollars they were awarded. We did this so that they could support residents of the Treasure Valley facing extreme hardships in the best ways possible. Recently, Kate Nelson from Jannus's Economic Opportunity Program shared these touching sentiments:     "We are deeply grateful for the...

ACT NOW - Advocate for Early Learning in Idaho! United Way of Treasure Valley needs YOUR help advocating to our state representatives to approve S1193, the appropriation bill for the federal Preschool Development Grant renewal.
