LiveUnited 365 Local Business Challenge

LIVE UNITED 365 Local Business Challenge

The United Way of Front Royal-Warren County is introducing a fundraising program designed for local businesses in 2017. With the LiveUnited 365 Local Business Challenge, businesses participate by donating $365 per year in one of three ways:

 Making a direct contribution to the United Way (quarterly billing available)
 Encourage staff members to raise the money or host a fundraising event
 Sales promotion with proceeds benefiting the United Way of Front Royal-Warren County

Our goal is to get 100 Local businesses on board this year. Participants will receive a window cling to let others know they’re part of the program, and will be recognized in an advertisement later in the year.

A great big “THANK YOU” to all of the volunteers for United Way’s 2016 annual Day of Caring, which turned out to be a very nice day to get out and give to those in need.

You Rock!
