United Way of the Wine Country has been dedicated to improving lives locally for 50 years. Everyone deserves a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, income that can support a family through retirement, and good health. To create lasting change, United Way focuses on solving the underlying causes of common problems related to education, income and health. We are committed to achieving lasting solutions - not just quick fixes - for our entire community.
Women United is proud to host events to bring awareness of the importance of early childhood education and to raise funds to support United Way’s programs and services related to early childhood education. Reading Between the Vines has been our signature event since 2016 with almost $50,000 raised for area kids so far! We appreciate our sponsors, donors, and in-kind contributors who make this signature event possible.
On April 14, 2018, we are partnering again with the John Jordan Foundation and welcoming new partner CTE Foundation of Sonoma County as we present Reading Between the Vines 2018 at Jordan Vineyard & Winery. We partner to make a difference in education while building and placing Little Free Libraries in our community. These libraries will be built by local high school students, supporting hands-on learning and will be a convenient and free resource for children and families to obtain books while promoting education and literacy.
