This holiday season, join United Way of Metro Chicago and make a difference in the lives of individuals and families across the region who continue to face the challenge of food insecurity. United Way, in partnership with local community organizations will once again host Uniting for the Holidays, a festive, “drive-through” event taking place in ten suburban communities from mid-November to mid-December. Your support will help ensure thousands of families across the region receive a meal and gifts that will brighten their holiday.

Meeting our neighbors’ most basic needs, such as food security, is a key part of United Way’s approach to building a stronger, more equitable region and your generous support makes this possible. YOU can make a difference this holiday season!
