At United Way, changing lives is all in a day's work. It's what we call LIVING UNITED. And, that's why we are pleased to announce we have added the following team members dedicated to our mission to crush poverty in Erie County.

We are excited to welcome Scot, Alycia, Josh and Donnie to our United Way team.
