How I Live United


My Name is Kerr.


Volunteering has become a way of life since my retirement in 2001. Volunteering with various non-profits, like Habitat for Humanity and our church youth group allows me the opportunity to improve life for those who are less fortunate. And as a bonus, I get to spend quality time with people I love and care about.


I Don't Just Wear The Shirt,

I Live It!

Live United

A credo. A mission. A goal. A constant reminder that when we as individuals think outside ourselves, we have the power to facilitate change. When we think of others' lives as linked to our own, our compassion grows. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our community. And we change the lives of those who walk by us everyday.


More, it is a command. To give. To advocate. To volunteer. Because United, we stand. United, we elevate. United, we persevere. United, we move through, above and beyond. United, we can change what we see in our community.


Advancing the Common Good


United Way is working to advance the common good by focusing on education, income, and health. These are the building blocks for a good life - a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. Our goal is to create long-lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place. We invite you to be a part of the change. Together, United, we can inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow. That's what it means to LIVE UNITED.
