United Way Community Impact Bell Tower Thursday

United Way utilizes volunteers throughout its many programs and considers volunteers to be at the heart of its mission. Recently, United Way partnered with the Dr. Piper Center to provide its Foster Grandparent program volunteers the opportunity to help United Way at its School Resource Center. These volunteers helped us sort items and fill orders for children in need across the School District of Lee County.
We're so thankful for #volunteers
