United Way of Danville-Pittsylvania County is delighted to welcome our 2023 campaign chair, Austin Scher!
We envision a community where children and youth succeed, families are financially stable and independent, and people have access to basic needs and emergency support.
We believe by mobilizing a network of partners, volunteers, donors, and agencies; we can address the most pressing challenges to improve people’s lives.
We work to better the education, health, and financial stability of every person in our community. We must support an array of strategies that wrap around those most in need.
There is no one solution to meet the needs of our most vulnerable neighbors.
