These images capture how our friends, family, and neighbors Live United by giving, advocating, and volunteering to create a better tomorrow for our community.

In the summer of 2013 community members were invited to participate in the 'This is How I Live United Photo Contest' by snapping an image showing off their Live United spirit while wearing a Live United t-shirt.

While you're at Lennie's be sure to check out the Live United photos (Sun-Thur: 11 am-11 pm; Fri - Sat: 11 am-12 am). Thanks to the crew at Lennie's Restaurant & Brewpub for welcoming United Way!

These photos showcase that when we Live United and think outside ourselves, we have the power to bring about positive and lasting change. Each entry illustrates how our community creates the building blocks for a better life -- Education, Earnings, and the Essentials.  Congratulations to all of our winners and thanks to everyone who participated!
