United in Recovery Campaign Launches in Frederick County!
As we recover and rebuild our economy, we must lend a hand to struggling families who have helped us over the years. They are our teachers, hospitality and restaurant workers, first responders, health service workers, seniors and veterans, and so many others.

On Monday, United Way of Frederick County launched the United in Recovery campaign to 1) help ALICE families recover and rebuild; 2) assist nonprofits by providing funds, volunteers and training; and 3) provide businesses and local government with critical research and analysis about the condition of working families in Frederick County.
