You Can Help a Child Year-Round Through Your Workplace Payroll Deduction

November 6, 2017

Does your employer participate in the United Way Workplace Campaign or are you (or a family/friend) a New York State worker? Sign up today for payroll donations so that you can help a child year-round for just the price of a large coffee every week! 

Payroll Deduction Gift

A gift through payroll deduction is an easy way to give and one you might not have considered. Generous gifts at any level help children at The House. Many supporters donate $1 a paycheck. For less than the cost of a candy bar, that dollar power provides resources for children to thrive.
