When individuals and families need support, it's comforting to know that there are organizations can help. Nonprofit organizations, like United Way of West Florida, have a mutual relationship with the people that make up our community. They rely on donations of money, time, and goods - from those in a position to provide them - in order to provide services to those in need. Often, those people who receive help turn out to be our biggest supporters and advocates when they get back on their feet. When you help an agency, you're helping people. You're helping our community.
