Mile High United Way
The Mile High United Way is an organization that helps coordinate and focus charitable activity in the Denver Metro area. The United Way is often involved in identifying the needs of the community and allocating resources.
The charitable community has long realized the need for organizing their activity. Without some oversight, efforts will overlap and other people would be left in unacceptable gaps in the system.
You will often find the United Way involved in organizing emergency preparedness strategies, organizing youth activities, feeding the hungry, providing aid to victims of family violence or addressing other pressing needs in the community.
The Mile High United Way web site is a wonderful resource with information on charitable actions, how to get assistance and fundraising events.The Mile High United Way is interconnected with the National United Way. When disaster struck in New Orleans, stocked piled resources from the United Way organizations around the country rushed to help the victims of the hurricanes and floods.
Many businesses and individuals like to direct their donations to the United Way because the United Way has a dedicated staff that assesses needs in the community and allocates the funds accordingly.
