The United Way workplace campaign unites employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate, volunteer and speak out for causes that matter to them. You can see the results in your own backyard, even as you're part of a larger mission to affect change worldwide.
The workforce campaign is about more than raising money for worthy causes; it also strengthens connections between employees and their community. In Des Moines, for example, hundreds of employees take part in United Way's annual Graduation Walk, going door-to-door to encourage students to stay in (or return to) school. Nearly 5,000 youth have re-engaged in high school because of the work of United Way of Central Iowa and Des Moines employees.
