Featured Charity of the Month

United Way of the Greater TriangleA suggested $5 donation collected at the door, will benefit the The United Way of the Greater Triangle (UWGT), an organization that proudly brings together local partner agencies, nonprofits, government volunteers and experts in Durham, Johnston, Orange and Wake counties to focus on lasting changes to key issues.

United Way of the Greater Triangle was born out of the consolidation of the United Ways of Durham, Orange and Wake counties in 1996 and the addition of Johnston County in 2009. The consolidation reduced overhead costs while allowing for the expansion of services across the region.

With the help of thousands of volunteers, United Way of the Greater Triangle, is now working to build our community. Last year, they touched the lives of more than 300,000 people in need across Durham, Johnston, Orange and Wake counties..
