Page ContentVolusia County Schools 2012 United Way Campaign In 1887, a Denver woman, a priest, two ministers and a rabbi recognized the need for cooperative action to address their city's problems. They created an organization to serve as an agent to collect funds for local charities, as well as to coordinate relief services, counsel and refer clients to cooperating agencies, and make emergency assistance grants in cases which could not be referred. More than 125 years later, United Way is still focused on mobilizing the caring power of communities and making a difference in people's lives.
