United Way Fox Cities

United Way Initiatives

Our community’s pressing needs require urgent attention. Sometimes, this requires an innovative solution. In addition to funding partner agencies and programs, United Way Fox Cities invests in initiatives and services that help fill gaps in our communities. Together — United — we can create a stronger, more caring community for everyone.

The mission of the Kimberly-Clark Diaper Bank is to raise the community’s awareness of the need for diapers to assist low income families in meeting their diaper needs.

The VT Connector, a Fox Cities regional transportation initiative, was developed in partnership with Valley Transit to address the needs of individuals with lower incomes relying on public transportation for employment purposes.
