Wake up with United Way
Second Thursdays of the month, 7:45 am - 9:00 am

Join us the second Thursday each month for breakfast, networking, and an enlightening presentation and discussion of timely topics. Alongside friends, neighbors, nonprofits and community partners, learn more about issues that directly or indirectly affect everyone in our area: homelessness; innovative treatments for substance use disorder; the intersection of housing and poverty; raising children in the 21st century; and disabilities in the workplace, among others. You’ll have the opportunity to deepen your awareness about someone else's reality while learning about the challenges, innovations, collaborations, and resources available through area nonprofits.

Your $10 ticket will cover the cost of breakfast, with remaining proceeds supporting United Way of Monroe County's efforts to address our community's critical needs today, while reducing those needs tomorrow.
We look forward to seeing you on the second Thursday of every month - mark your calendars and look for specifics to be announced each month.
