United Way is deeply grateful for the support of more than 350 company partners whose employees volunteered for 2017 Project Homeless Connect on October 12 at the Baltimore Convention Center. Their support helped turn our fight against homelessness into a win for more than 2,000 guests who received critical services aimed at helping them get back on the path to self-sufficient lives.

Thank you, EY! From the start EY shows their employees what it means to Live United. At a recent staff orientation, a group of employees built 7 brand new Radio Flyer tricycles to donate to United Way. The tricycles were given to The Ben Franklin Center for Community Schools in Brooklyn-Curtis Bay, for the children of students at Ben Franklin High School. If a family is struggling or facing obstacles at home, the time the child is at the center is even more important because stress free environment and they are able to really enjoy something as simple as riding a tricycle.
When they aren’t entertaining fans at the Inner Harbor’s Odditorium and attractions all over the world, the leadership of Ripley’s Believe it or Not! gives back. During their recent corporate conference in Baltimore, Ripley’s made a generous gift of$25,000 in donations, furniture and supplies to United Way partner school Maree G. Farring Elementary/Middle School in Brooklyn-Curtis Bay. While they were in town, 85 employees from all over the world spent the day building and setting up new furniture and giving out special Ripley’s themed bags with books and toys for each student in the 4th grade.
Maree G. Farring is home to United Way’s On Track 4 Success education program to helps kids stay on track to graduate.
Since 2004, Howard Bank has helped build dreams for small businesses, families and its employees and now expands their commitment to community by becoming a United Way Path to Stability project partner.
Their investment in this program helps keep a family facing eviction out of a shelter and gives them access to the resources and services they need to get back on their feet and become more stable. Checkpoints on the Path to Stability could include housing services, temporary financial assistance, a dedicated case manager, financial counseling, a Thanksgiving meal and holiday gifts.
Since 2012, United Way’s Family Stability programs have been able to help nearly 1,500 families get back on the path to stability, and we won’t stop there. Thank you, Howard Bank for your generous support so that we may broaden our impact and help more families.

Year after year WPM Real Estate Management exceeds their campaign goals, and commitment to community. In addition to doubling their annual campaign donations, WPM began housing six homeless families from St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore’s Sarah’s Hope at Hannah More, a United Way partner agency. WPM employees also helped make life a little easier for those most in need with a socks and toiletries drive. Congratulations to WPM for their phenomenal success and a big thank you to the leadership team and employees for their continued support and dedication to the community.
CareFirst’s support of United Way made it possible for us to answer over 100,000 calls for help to the 211 Maryland United Way Helpline, and put hundreds of families on a path to stability in 2016.
They say good leaders are hard to find. If that’s true, we hit the jackpot, because there was no shortage of leaders at our September 1 Leaders United launch event. In fact, the Baltimore Visitor Center was at capacity as nearly 200 of central Maryland’s most influential leaders gathered to be inspired and motivated to come together and make a real difference in the lives of those struggling in our communities; to help us broaden our impact and do more; to be a powerful force for change.
The event was born out of the decision to re-launch our Leadership Society and the changing of its name to Leaders United – a name that better defines the people it embodies – a network of leaders united to create real change. A movement we are confident will take our region by storm.
In the coming year, Leaders United will help move our organization forward through its leadership and ability to leverage their networks of colleagues, friends and family – engaging them in our work with volunteerism, innovative problem solving around community issues and fundraising.
This great work we will embark on cannot happen without the support of this year’s sponsors of Leaders United – a group of organizations who know what it takes to not only lead, but to lead with purpose. Thank you to GM Baltimore Operations, EZShield, Signal Hill, Rightsource Marketing, Wegmans, Saul Ewing and CBIZ MHM for your commitment and dedication to Leaders United and its mission to create real change in central Maryland.
