Thank You!

From Elgin to Ford Heights, 3,000 families in 10 suburban locations received meals, gifts, educational resources, wellness supplies and more at Uniting for the Holidays this year. To every donor, community partner, volunteer and sponsor who supported our regional events—thank you! You provided holiday cheer and helped make a difference this holiday season!

While our Uniting for the Holidays events may have ended, the need continues. You can still make a gift to United Way of Metro Chicago and support our ongoing commitment to helping families across the region meet their most basic needs and together build stronger, more equitable communities.
