100 Ways to Celebrate

100 Heroes

Our work doesn't happen alone. As United Way of the Mohawk Valley celebrates 100 years of making an impact in our community, we hope to celebrate 100 local heroes who have done the same. 

Our community is like no other, and that's because of its people, their heart, their passion, and their resilience. The people of this community step up, no matter the call to action, making a difference in the lives of our neighbors, friends, families. 

Help us recognize and celebrate this community's UNSUNG heroes.
