United Way Events | United Way of Essex and West Hudson

United Way Events

Each year, the United Way of Essex and West Hudson holds various events, each designed to serve a specific purpose.

While some are designed as fundraisers, others serve as opportunities to become directly involved with the communities that we serve, and to recognize the valuable contributions of our volunteers. By choosing to attend or sponsor United Way events, you are afforded the opportunity to be an integral part of the impact United Way is making in the community.

Through our core initiatives and vision councils, United Way moves beyond the surface of critical community problems to tackle their underlying causes. We understand that the various issues we face are interrelated and must be addressed together. Our goal is to bring all sectors of the community together to work collaboratively in solving community problems.

As you will see, there are many opportunities for you or your organization to become involved. We would love for you to join us!
