A Morning to Celebrate

Thanks to all who joined us on May 21 at Piper's Banquets for our annual Fox Valley United Way Recognition Breakfast:  "CELEBRATING A COMMUNITY THAT CARES".

 

Once again, the event was a chance for us to honor donors, volunteers, advocates and social service agencies that are creating a better future for our Fox Valley neighbors in need.

 

We heard inspiring stories of those who give of their time, talent and resources, and those who have been blessed by their generosity.

 

If you weren't able to attend, or if you would like to revisit the event, please click here to view the program book and photo gallery.

Companies That Care

Businesses are crucial to the economic health of our community, but there are special organizations that go above and beyond the call to make a real impact for those in need.

Fox Valley United Way would like to recognize Nicor Gas for their recent $32,900 corporate contribution to our 2015 fundraising campaign.

On behalf of those who will benefit from your generosity, thank you for joining with us to make a difference in the communities we both serve.
