2020 has been a historic year, and we still have a way to go to get to 2021. We do not yet know what a post pandemic world looks like, where social distancing is commonplace, and our communities continue to unite in protecting the most vulnerable of our population.   

As we look forward to a time where we can again be with our families, friends and coworkers, United Way of Central Kentucky continues the work of supporting the people in our region who need it most. In the months that have passed, we as a community, have been witness to the generosity that lives here in Central Kentucky. From donations of money, time, and food, to hand sanitizer and household essentials-the response has been incredible. But there is still more work to do.  

Introducing: Central Kentucky United, a community mosaic demonstrating the spirit of the people that make up our communities of Hardin, Breckinridge, Meade, Grayson and LaRue Counties uniting around a common cause. By adding your photo to our mosaic, you are demonstrating your support of United Way’s fight for every person in our community to enjoy safe, healthy, sustainable standards of living.

We want you to share your photos with us! Show us how you Live United with snapshots of working from home, school at the kitchen table, family dinner, hugging your pet, working puzzles, or volunteering. Our communities are full of wonderful people and great moments and we want to build a mosaic of positivity with the people who create opportunities for others when they LIVE UNITED.
