How Do We Fight for the Community?

IN TWO ESSENTIAL WAYS:

1.  Since we are well acquainted with the needs in our communities, we recruit donors, volunteers and advocates who want to join us to make a difference.

 

  • We encourage businesses to give their employees an opportunity to give to the 63 social services agencies we support through Workplace Giving Campaigns.

  • We accept direct donations from local, regional and national businesses.

  • We enable individuals/groups to give cash and non-cash donations through our secure online donation platform (click on the red DONATE button!)

  • We host special events to raise funds and awareness:  What Floats Your Cardboard Boat Race, Holiday Assistance, Souper Bowl of Caring, Annual Breakfast

 

2. We forge unique partnerships to address special needs in our community:

SPARK AURORA EARLY CHILDHOOD COLLABORATION (www.sparkaurora.org) --Our partnership with area school districts that is working to ensure that all of Aurora's children receive quality preschool education, setting the stage for success in school and beyond.

VOLUNTEER FOX VALLEY (www.volunteerfoxvalley.org)--Our website collaboration with Aurora University that connects volunteers with nonprofit organizations in the Fox Valley that need their time and talent.

FamilyWize Prescription Drug Discount (click here to download) --A free discount prescription card that we distribute that has already helped 10,000 community members save $1.2 million on medications.

THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS YOU CAN JOIN US TO LIVE UNITED--GIVING, ADVOCATING, VOLUNTEERING!
