Year-End Message from United Way Quad Cities President Rene Gellerman

How could we ever thank you after a year like 2020?

This could have been a devastating year for United Way Quad Cities and the partners and people we serve. Instead it was a year filled with generosity, resilience and so much hope. 

Please take a few minutes — eight, to be precise — to watch this video and reflect with me on how, together, we’ve responded to this year’s community needs — especially those presented by the coronavirus pandemic. And, find out where we’re heading in the coming year.

Thank you for all you do to put opportunity in the hands of all Quad Citizens.

President & CEO
