Day of Action


Every year, United Ways throughout the country invite people and organizations to LIVE UNITED by offering opportunities to take action to address a variety of challenges in their communities. On June 21, you can help United Way of Racine County put its mission into action by improving the building blocks for a good quality of life—health, education, and financial stability.


On June 21, 2018, United Way of Racine County lead local corporate and community volunteers in the creation of 500 financial literacy kits to be distributed to local children. Financial literacy for youth is important as it educates them on the best way to manage finances and prepares them for a bright financial future.

Thank you to our partners and sponsors: 

Elizabeth Mission Group of First Evangelical Lutheran
