Waves of gratitude for United Way helpers

-A +A


Grace Kim Shin of Enterprise Rent-A-Car waves signs in the company’s parking lot in Roseville last week with United Way California Capital Region staff to thank Enterprise employees for participating in the United Way campaign.

The event was part of United Way’s Week of Thanks that celebrated United Way’s donors, volunteers and company and nonprofit partners. For 90 years, United Way has actively worked with donors, volunteers and partners to address the community’s most pressing issues, now focusing on innovative solutions related to high school graduation rates, household financial stability and obesity. United Way’s team is now working together to provide positive, measurable results on these issues through United Way projects: STAR Readers, $en$e-Ability and Fit Kids.

Community members can give, volunteer and advocate in support of the causes they care most about, benefiting United Way and hundreds of nonprofits in Amador, El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties. United Way is an independent, local affiliate of United Way Worldwide. For more information, visit
