Community involvement is essential to United Way's fight to create positive change throughout Sumner County, and we are always working to create new opportunities for individuals, businesses, and other groups to join our efforts. Throughout the year, we host events to increase awareness of our mission, raise funds to create positive change, and bring people together for good times and the common good. Check back often or follow us on social media to see when we add additional events to our schedule.
The Community Impact Breakfast is a celebration honoring our partner agencies, donors, volunteers, and advocates who have helped improve lives in our community through involvement with our work at United Way of Sumner County. It is also an invitation to Sumner County leaders to learn about our efforts in the community and congratulate those who have made our work possible. Finally, it is an opportunity to hear United Way of Sumner County’s vision for Community Impact.
