What is the difference between these two funds?

Donate To United Way and 2-1-1
Funds donated to United Way will be used to help United Way continue to be the voice in the dark with 2-1-1 and to strengthen the long-term needs of our community in education, financial stability and health.

Other Ways to Help

Thousands of people have called United Way’s 2-1-1 before, during and after the storm. Volunteers are needed to both respond to 2-1-1 storm related calls and to input the calls into the system so we can give reports to elected officials about the changing needs in the community. Special thanks to The Volunteer Center of United Way for their help managing United Way’s 2-1-1 volunteers.
To sign up for future opportunities to volunteer with 2-1-1 please email or call 914-997-6700 x706.
