518 Community Celebration

This year Tri-County United Way is excited to announce and share a number of exciting events throughout the month of  May in honor of our 518 communities. This month long event held in May is a time when our communities throughout our  service are come together to honor their collective achievements and give back to those in need.

It’s a time to reflect on the values of compassion and service that bind us, and to recognize the efforts of individuals who dedicate their time and energy to making our communities a better place. During this time, we encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to volunteer, get involved and donate to support causes they truly care about, whether it’s helping families & individuals in need, caring for our senior citizens, or supporting our local partner agencies. It’s a time of unity, positivity, and hope, as we work together to create a brighter and healthier future for everyone.

We thank the following community leader and organization for helping to make our Tri-County region a kinder, more compassionate community. We invite you to join us in celebration of our 5-1-8 communities throughout Warren, Washington and Northern Saratoga Counties. For more information about how to get involved, please contact Laura Jensen at (518) 793-3136. These acts of kindness and community engagement continue to demonstrate the power of unity and the positive impact that can be achieved when individuals come together for a shared purpose. United, we do more.
