Your Investment's Impact: Income

Did you know that 41 percent of renters in Buncombe County now pay more than 30 percent of their income for housing? According to the Consolidated Strategic Housing and Community Development Plan, the Asheville Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) has the most expensive housing of any MSA in North Carolina, even though the median income is below the state figure and hourly wages are well below state averages.

CELEBRATION! Tickets on sale now.

As we reach the mid-point of our annual fundraising campaign, let’s keep our eyes on the prize – raising as much money as we can to support United Way’s critical work in Education, Income and Health! Then, on Nov. 4, we’ll celebrate our success and honor those who made it possible at our annual LIVE UNITED Celebration.

As always, we'll eat well, laugh hard, applaud loud and be back to work on time!

School Supply Drive Still Underway

Big thanks go out to Dr. Hoskins who gave us a supply of toothbrushes and toothpaste today.  We'll be including them in every fully-stocked backpack that we put together for students this fall.

Donations will be accepted until July 22.  If you'd like to be a part of this effort, be sure to visit Hands On Asheville-Buncombe where you can get a list of the school supplies needed as well as information about the different drop-off sites.
