The United Way annual fund-raising campaign at Jefferson Lab is underway and will continue through Nov. 2. The lab's goal is 100 percent participation by staff. This is a great way to give back to our community, to help make our community a better place and to say "thank you" for the support this region has given to the lab over the years.
The United Way of the Virginia Peninsula partners with local businesses, municipalities, individuals and other non-profits in a community-wide fund-raising campaign that provides necessary resources to programs that address a broad range of community needs. Donations and pledges help fund programs that target everything from basic needs like food and shelter, to crisis and emergency response, after-school programs, affordable daycare, transportation for the elderly, job training for the disabled and much more.

Thank you for your support.
