Heart of Florida United Way fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in Central Florida.
Looking back, I realize what a turbulent year it was for Central Florida. Hurricane Irma stormed through, followed closely by Hurricane Maria devastating our friends in Puerto Rico. We saw a huge influx of evacuees escaping to our area, and united, our community welcomed them with open arms. Despite the loss and devastation caused by the storms, there are plenty of victories to celebrate. Hundreds of thousands of lives are better today because our community worked united in the fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in Central Florida.
