This year, we’re proud to feature the work of Orange County United Way as our charity spotlight.

For nearly a century, Orange County United Way has been at the forefront of our community, dedicated to addressing the critical issues facing local residents and empowering everyone to build self-sufficient and successful lives.

Through its key initiatives—United for Student SuccessSM, United for Financial SecuritySM, and United to End HomelessnessSM—the organization is working to ensure local students succeed, struggling OC families gain financial security, and our unhoused neighbors find a place to call home. They also offer vital support via 2-1-1 Orange County (211OC), a key service that connects thousands of our most vulnerable residents with health and human service resources.

In 2024, Orange County United Way will commemorate 100 years of impact in our community. Join them on a year-long Journey to 100 centennial celebration as the organization prepares for another century of caring for each other The OC Way. Learn more and see how you can get involved. or donate.
