Since its incorporation, UWCC has raised over 18 million dollars and supports over 30 community partner agencies. Today, UWCC continues to fight for improved education, health and financial stability for all people in Calvert County. To commemorate the past 40 years of service to the community, United Way of Calvert County invites the community to take part in its celebratory events this coming April.
