United Way of Will County services are initiated and operated by United Way of Will County in response to identified gaps in local community services.
Hygiene for Humanity
A product supply drive that fulfills the need for hygiene items by local families and individuals in-need or experiencing homeless. This program gives people a clean start by providing items that are unfulfilled by SNAP and WIC.
Read to Succeed
A program to encourage the importance of literacy and create access to literature in low-income students and their parents as these students are less likely to read at grade level. This project includes My Little Free Libraries, reading to kids through partners, and sharing materials on the importance of literacy, all while promoting the local public library.
