The 2021-22 Rice United Way Campaign

One smile and someone feels safe. One encouraging word and a child grows. One brick and a home takes shape. One outstretched hand and someone is back on their feet. Success is the work of many, but it starts with one. One voice. One word. One decision. One person who cares.

Will you be one who sees a need in our community and pledges to do something about it?

One person really can change the world, one person at a time. It begins with you, and it only takes a minute.

Please make a pledge now. Thank you.

Helping our neighbors thrive
