September 11th is a day for remembering, and for serving. Designated by Congress as the National Day of Service and Remembrance, September 11th has become a day of engaging in charitable service as a way to honor the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks. On 9/11 and every day, committing to even the smallest act of service is what United Way means when we ask you to LIVE UNITED.

Ways you can give back – find a volunteer project on our website, sign up to tutor a student, write a thank you note to a first responder, make a donation in honor of someone.

United Way covers all 100 counties in North Carolina. Find your local chapter here to volunteer or donate.
