Thank you for a great year!

Thank you for a great year!

As we ring in the new year, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for your support in 2018. Through the generosity of our community…

* United Way Community Grants awarded $65,000 to member agencies whose programs and projects support our community’s priorities.

* United Way’s Community Impact Activities helped raise over $90,000 to address the affordable housing crisis in Southwestern Oregon. Key projects included sponsorship of the Coos County and Curry County Comprehensive Housing Studies, both completed this year.   

* United Way’s Annual Day of Caring provided yard and maintenance services for 50 senior and disabled community members in Coos Bay and North Bend.

* United Way’s Coats and Shoes for Kids Project provided a new coat, hoodie or pair of shoes for over 300 needy children and teens in grades K-12 in Coos and Curry county schools and alternative programs.

United Way of Southwestern Oregon will see exciting changes this year – including a new location in downtown Coos Bay! Please join us for our “office warming” party on January 16th to see our new space and hear more about our plans for 2019.

Nothing is as powerful as a concerned group coming together for a common purpose. When you give to United Way, you are investing in the strength and future of our community. Whether you choose to make your 2019 contribution through giving, advocating, or volunteering, know that your dedication to our community is making a difference.

Thank you again for helping us to LIVE UNITED. Happy new year!
