  • Everyone should make a will or living trust, regardless of wealth. Having a plan in place ensures that your wishes are known and saves your loved ones the stress and cost of intestate probate proceedings.With a valid will or trust, you can choose who gets your property, name guardians for your children, provide a home for your pets, and more. It only takes 20 minutes, and you can update your documents later if your plans change. https://www.freewill.com/unitedway
  • In August 2022, UWCK launched Laundry Love. The mission of Laundry Love is to wash the clothes and bedding of low/no income families and individuals. Laundry Love exists to help prevent physical and emotional strain that poor health and hygiene places on the under-resourced in our community. Laundry Love will be on the third Saturday of the month from 10:00-2:00 at Discount Laundry on Jefferson St in Great Bend. If you or your business is interested in sponsoring a month or donating supplies, please reach out to United Way of Central Kansas by clicking on "Contact Us". Sign up to volunteer by clicking here.
