The Heart of Arkansas United Way's kick-off event will be this Wednesday, September 12 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Dickey-Stephens Park. Admission is free!
Visit fun and informational booths about the 34 health and human service agencies that United Way supports while enjoying music from Phil G and Lori Marie.

"A successful United Way campaign is very important to the quality of life in Central Arkansas" says United Way President John Nazzaro. "Local health and human service agencies, such as the Ronald McDonald House, American Red Cross, Camp Aldersgate, Our House and the Arkansas Foodbank Network, rely on United Way funds to carry out their missions."
Last year, United Way raised over $4.2 million dollars to help people with disabilities, low-income seniors, disadvantaged youth, families-in-crisis, survivors of domestic violence, and many others.
