United Way of San Joaquin County is a 501c3 non-profit organization located in Stockton, CA . How can you be a part of United Way? It starts by making a small contribution that you designate to your favorite local non-profit including us. By doing this it raises spirits and hope, and gives everyone a chance to help. Sometimes it is not enough to give people a night of shelter, but rather make sure that they're not homeless in the first place. Doing this builds a better community and gives people in need a reason to smile. A strong community is a good place to call home. Just remember there are 3 easy ways to give: 1) payroll deduction 2) online at unitedwaysjc.org or 3) one-time gift with cash, check or credit card. And mostly because once upon a time, someone helped you or someone you know.
