Nothing can bring a smile or joy to person more than receiving an unexpected card from a friend or neighbor. During a time when we can’t all be together, you can help bring joy to a senior in our community through our ReUnited Holiday Cheer Card Delivery.
United Way has teamed up with local programs and retirement communities to bring a little joy to our community’s seniors, many of whom have endured months without seeing their friends and loved ones in-person.
Two Ways you can help:
A) Holiday Card Drop-Off
