The United Way creates long-lasting community change by addressing the underlying causes of significant local issues. Common focus areas include helping children and youth achieve their potential, promoting financial stability and independence, and improving people’s health.
Since 1974, employees of C&S have been supporting local United Way chapters across the country. Employee donations are matched by C&S for twice the impact.
“United Way could not make the impact that it does in communities without the support of partners like C&S Wholesale Grocers and their generous employees. C&S demonstrates their commitment to improving lives by actively giving and volunteering throughout the year. Even in these challenging economic times, C&S employees, through the 2008 C&S United Way campaign, increased their giving by a remarkable 25 percent! Additionally, the company matched those gifts dollar-for-dollar. These outstanding efforts are not only creating stronger, healthier communities, they serve as a model for individual and corporate engagement and volunteerism.”
