United We Move is back for 2022!

 

Kick off the 2022-2023 Annual Campaign by signing up to walk, run, or ride in the Fall River Bioreserve with us on Saturday, October 22, 2022. Choose your distance: 1 mile walk, 5 mile hike, 5 mile run, 10 mile run, 10 mile ride, 20 mile ride.  Family friendly, glorious foliage…and you’re helping us reach our fundraising goal of $1.2 million to fight for the health, education, and financial stability of Greater Fall River.

United Way of Greater Fall River believes everyone deserves opportunities for a good life: a quality education that leads to sustaining job opportunities, enough income to support a family, and a good, healthy lifestyle that increases life expectancy.

Your donation supports basic needs, disaster relief and recovery, and programs that provide essential services such as behavioral health and family supports, outreach to seniors and veterans, and quality out-of-school enrichment experiences.

It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.

These unprecedented times have put United Way’s purpose to the test. Our mission “to improve lives by mobilizing people to invest in the community where their resources are needed most” has never been more relevant.  We support our partner agencies with sustainable funding, recognizing that their presence is needed now more than ever. The need for access to behavioral and mental health clinics, crisis hotlines, food pantries and soup kitchens, job assistance and training, early childhood education and youth services is greater now than it has been in recent history.  Together with our partner agencies, we are engaging in the work to respond, recover, reimagine, and rebuild Greater Fall River as a community, post-pandemic.
