Providing Opportunities for Children Who Need it Most

What is your most embarrassing moment?

For many of us, it might be a spilled drink or a forgotten name. But for children at a United Way Partner Agency summer program, the answers were more serious.

“I was placed in foster care last week.”

“My mom went to jail for stealing food.”

“Can I have a backpack for my clothes because my family is living in our car?”

“I’m embarrassed because I smell. Our water and electricity was shut off and I haven’t showered in a lot of days.”

Sadly, these answers indicate the stark reality of many Oklahoma children.

When you donate to United Way, you support a network of Partner Agencies that provide Oklahoma children with a safe place to go after school, employment assistance and food for their families and a roof over their heads.

Every dollar matters. And every donation makes a critical impact.

If you’re not in need yet, please help someone who is.
