Members, family and friends are invited to participate in Fall Fest at Leg Up Farm on Saturday, October 13, where Women United will be manning a pumpkin decorating area! Volunteers are needed for two shifts: 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.
 
 
Curious as to the volunteer projects we've tackled in the past?
 
Women United was thrilled to participate in United Way of York County's Day of Action, York’s largest single-day volunteer event, by painting the fence at Able-Services! Nearly 20 individuals made quick work of the project, which was a great opportunity for members and friends to better get to know one another. Thank you to all who joined us. Check out photos from the Women United project and many of the other 76 projects from the 2018 Day of Action.
 
And, stay tuned for additional volunteer opportunities coming up!

 


Help us support #yorkreads initiatives in York County!
 
Women United strives to build a stronger community by promoting literacy and lifelong learning. In May 2018, a Little Free Library was installed at the Bob Hoffman Branch of the YMCA of York and York County, in Dover. Supported by Women United members, the library is just one of United Way of York County's #yorkreads initiatives, which offer an additional outlet to distribute age-appropriate books to children and families who may otherwise not have access, and to encourage reading in the home.
 
At each Women United event, look for the table set up to collect new and gently used books that will support this Little Free Library, and help us to create more opportunities for reading!
