Julie Becomes a Volunteer
Many of us have wondered how that person on the corner became homeless. Whether that teen mom waiting for the bus with her child, will have the support she needs to finish her education. Or what the future holds for that third grader reading on a first grade level – and whether or not there is something we can do to help.
Questions like these led me to get involved with Mile High United Way’s Women United as a volunteer. As a volunteer, I’ve seen firsthand the challenges that children and families face in our community and I have had the opportunity to advocate for others.
Together, Women United collects thousands of books, toys, diapers, and clothing for those in need. We provide hundreds of hours of reading, tutoring and coaching. And we give millions of dollars to invest in programs and resources that move people out of poverty and allow them to reach their full potential.
What I love about being curious is that the more I learn, the more I realize I don’t know. Won’t you join us? Become a volunteer today.
