April 15, 2022, Tacoma, Wash. — In May, 2022, United Way of Pierce County is turning 101 years old! To continue a multi-year Centennial campaign, help us celebrate by donating non-perishable food at our drive-up birthday party in conjunction with Hunger Awareness Month!

We are celebrating over 100 years of building a thriving community for everyone and creating possibilities together. United Way of Pierce County identifies and works to address our community’s most critical problems—together, we will lift 15,000 families out of poverty by 2028.

About United Way of Pierce County
United Way of Pierce County has served our community since 1921. Our history is rooted in partnerships—bringing people from different walks of life together to improve conditions for children, families and individuals. While that will never change, our role as a community fundraiser has shifted as the United Way movement has sharpened our focus to solve key community issues that are preventing people from meeting their full potential. Today we are leading change by breaking the cycle of poverty in Pierce County. UNITED, WE WILL LIFT 15,000 FAMILIES OUT OF POVERTY BY 2028. Learn more at
