Purpose: To unite women and demonstrate their power to effect positive change as philanthropists, role models, mentors and leaders.
Local Vision: To build a stronger community by promoting literacy and lifelong learning.
Women United is a group where, regardless of age and background, women can come together to impact the lives of those in York County through volunteer projects, mentoring and hands-on leadership. Women in York County who currently contribute to United Way of York County and fall into the Membership Criteria (listed below) are invited to join this group of women.

Thanks to the 90+ members and guests who joined us on May 16 for Lifelong Learning: Women In Business, a breakfast event with Lynne Breil of The Professional Edge. Slightly different from our standard Interviews With Inspiring Women format, this interactive event with Lynne provided food for thought on the 7 Deadly Sins of 21st Century Business Behavior — even with a few collective groans and plenty of laughter sprinkled in.

On Friday, June 21, Women United is participating in Day of Action, York's largest single-day volunteer event, by painting fences for the third year at Able-Services. Come early for coffee at Leg Up Farmer's Market at 8 a.m., then join the group for the project from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Volunteers are also invited to the United Way Day of Action picnic at John C. Rudy County Park, with lunch, games and giveaways from 12:30 to 3 p.m.
Give a bit of your time and elbow grease, and spend the morning giving back! Members, friends and family are all welcome.
