Shockers and United Way make impact

Last year, United Way-funded United Way of the Plains supported individuals in the Shocker Neighborhood more than 35,400 times, and 211 alone assisted this neighborhood 16,328 times. The top service support categories were emergency social services and case management, food assistance, homeless prevention and developmental support for children.

This year, WSU would like to increase its donations by 4-5%. Every dollar donated equals $2.09 worth of impact because United Way leverages resources, grants, donated goods and volunteers, a dollar goes further and has a greater impact in the community. Where else can you get a return on your investment like that?

For 2022, members are invited to give to United Way at the level that’s right for them. A gift of any size makes a difference. To donate, fill out the ePledge form.
