At United Way of Greater Mercer County (UWGMC) we channel the passion and energy of young people to create the next generation of community leaders. Student United Way is a student-led organization that works in partnership with their local United Way to address the education, financial stability and health of the community.
UWGMC currently has a Student United Way Chapter at The College of New Jersey. Their focus is on volunteering in the local community and hosting their annual PB&J Race during the Spring semester. The purpose of the event is to bring students together to make peanut butter & jelly sandwiches that they donate to TASK (Trenton Area Soup Kitchen). If you are a student at TCNJ and would like to be a part of the LIVE UNITED movement with other like-minded students please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
