Getting involved with the United Way, allows you to make an impact wherever life takes you. Alyssa Blochlinger, a past volunteer and an Audit Senior at Deloitte continues to make a difference in her new home, New York City. Read her story:
"My journey with United Way started with a life-changing alternative spring break trip. I came back passionate about United Way's mission. I started Student United Way at The College of New Jersey and became an IRS tax volunteer for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program at United Way of Greater Mercer County. It was a fulfilling experience to help members of the community receive their tax refunds which were often used to buy cars to get to work or pay for college. I could see the tangible difference I was making in the community and it prepared me for my career. After I graduated, I moved to New York City, where I wanted to continue my involvement with United Way. I joined the Young Leader's Council and Women United with United Way of New York City. I can't imagine my life without United Way because my involvement has had such a positive and profound impact on my life."
