United Way of the Greater Triangle works with partners throughout our four-county region—more than 100 nonprofit agencies, 550 corporate sponsors, community and county leaders, along with 35,000 donors—to have a positive impact on the lives of individuals, helping to create pathways to a brighter future for them and for our communities. This United Way network makes us uniquely qualified to connect volunteers with the needs of the agencies and to help address some of our area’s most pressing issues.
For MLK Day, there are opportunities to work directly with our agencies. In addition, we have our own signature projects in our four counties that will help address basic needs like food and warm clothing, as well as broader issues like early childhood education. In Orange and Johnston, it is a “Community Reads” initiative; in Wake and Durham there are a range of activities from making soup mixes to creating baby blankets.
