About Twin County United Way

We bring together community volunteers and agencies to provide health and human services to the people of the Twin Counties.

Twin County United Way also provides much-needed services to the community through the coordination of emergency food and shelter monies and other projects such as the organization of food drives and safety programs.

A Community Aid
Twin County United Way raises money in the Twin County Region to fund a wide variety of community programs - including fire departments and rescue squads, medical clinic, emergency food, clothing and shelters-through 30 local non-profit agencies and community service programs.
Twin County United Way is managed by a board of volunteers drawn from a cross section of people from the area served. Volunteers govern the financial and policy decisions of the organization, study community needs, and work to raise and distribute campaign funds. Many area volunteers help run campaigns at individual businesses.
Twin County United Way combines the efforts of 30 non-profit agencies and community service programs. Those agencies are able to provide local people from all walks of life with much needed services because of the generosity of people like you. Services include health care and rehabilitation, affordable housing for low-income families, fire prevention and rescue, education, emergency services, crime prevention, and others.
