Wrap Around Strong Families by United Way

There is no better time to take a moment and consider all that we have to be thankful for this year. It is with gratitude that we say, Thank You. Together we connect to transform lives, making our communities better places to live and work.
Wishing you and your family a day filled with good health and good food!

While preparing for joyous holiday celebrations with your friends and family this week, it is important to pause and reflect on the joy and blessings in your own life but also remind ourselves that not everyone is so fortunate. Last year over 1,500 children in Montgomery, Greene, and Preble County, who would not have had any presents under the tree, were served by our generous donors and volunteers. This year, when shopping for gifts and gatherings with loved ones, please consider setting aside part of your budget to Wrap Around Strong Families for the holiday season and beyond. You can choose to give to presents for the holidays or support a family throughout the year:

Magic Maker - $50
Make the season magic by assisting a family in need for the holiday, providing gifts for children. These gifts include books, educational toys, and winter clothes.

Season Brightener - $100
Keep a family safe and warm for the holidays by providing assistance with utility bills, food, housing, and more.

Year Round Giver - $150
Keep the joy of the holiday season going year round with additional resources like job training, tutoring, financial assistance, and much more. Make your gift monthly and join our Leadership Circle.

Holiday Volunteer -
Volunteers can help Wrap Around Strong Families by assisting families as they apply for the program, sorting gifts, delivering gifts, and picking up gifts. Register as a Volunteer.

What better way to celebrate the holidays than by sharing your blessings with neighbors who are in need of assistance to make their holidays brighter? Your generosity will have a positive impact on local families, as well as our larger Miami Valley community. Every gift matters. Visit our website or text Strong Families to 91999 to Wrap Around Strong Families this season.

Thank you for joining me in make the season brighter for everyone,

Rafi Rodriguez,
United Way of the Greater Dayton Area Board Chair
