United Way of Westchester and Putnam is a 2023 GPLH Gold Sponsor. We are pleased to share their mission with you.
United Way of Westchester and Putnam (UWWP) mobilizes strategic partnerships and leverages resources to create a more equitable community by advancing education, financial stability, and health initiatives.
These include the 211 Helpline, the Ride United Last Mile food delivery program, the Education United After School program, the United2Read early literacy program for preschoolers, the Essential Goods for Basic Needs program (which donates $5-$6 million in new in-kind goods), and of course, grants and other investments in support of the programs offered by its nonprofit partners.
All of these efforts are designed to support the 40 percent of Westchester and Putnam households living in poverty or paycheck to paycheck, what we call ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed). Our work positively impacts hundreds of thousands of individuals every year.
