This year’s United Way community impact areas are education, income and health. In the impact area of education, they are helping children and adults achieve their potential through education and mentoring programs. In the impact area of income, they are helping families and seniors become financially stable and independent by supporting basic needs. Through the impact area of health, they are improving people’s health by increasing access to critical healthcare services, reducing substance abuse, child abuse and domestic violence. United Way is creating opportunities by focusing on these three building blocks of a good life. Visit the Rood Center during October and get some great deals on books while giving back to our community. For more information, contact Lelia Loomis at 530-265-1498.
