Highly selective criteria make it the single honor of philanthropic achievement in the Midlands. Among other criteria, nominees must provide outstanding leadership working with others over a sustained period.
LIVE UNITED Volunteer Award: Wondering what it means to actually "LIVE UNITED?" It's a credo. A mission. A goal. But more than that, it is a call to action to give, advocate and volunteer in order to improve the lives of everyone. Two LIVE UNITED Awards were presented to particularly fabulous United Way volunteers to people who not only understand what it means to Live United, but demonstrate it every day.
