At United Way of Metro Chicago, LIVE UNITED is more than a slogan.
Our dedicated employees are not only excited to contribute their time and talents to our organization, they’re deeply passionate about our work to build a stronger Chicago region, neighborhood by neighborhood.
“I support our United Way because I’ve lived in Chicago nearly my whole life and until working here, I didn’t fully understand how I could help my community in such an impactful way,” said Katie Jozwik, senior manager of Business Development. “It’s clear our United Way and our supporters create change, and I’m so proud to share that I’m a part of that.”
Our 2017 United Way Internal Campaign kicked off last week, giving employees the opportunity to put their money where their mouth is. Employees will pledge a monthly donation to United Way efforts, pack care packages for one of our Neighborhood Network partners and celebrate the important work that drives our mission forward.
To showcase what inspires us all here at United Way, we also created the Inspiration HUB. This corner of our office serves as space where employees can share things stories and moments that encourage them to continue fighting for our communities. Quickly, the space filled with pictures, quotes and memories of the many people, places, ideas and events that have inspired us all.
