This Giving Tuesday, invest in equitable opportunities and GEICO will match your gift!
Throughout our decades of work investing in the children, veterans and families who need us most, we have seen firsthand how systemic racism contributes to our community’s most persistent challenges.
In the St. Paul’s neighborhood, where we first launched United for Children, economic neglect has resulted in some of the greatest inequities in education, housing and health in our country. In fact, between two adjacent neighborhoods in Norfolk there is a 23-year difference in life expectancy. And, while Black individuals and families make up 64% of the population served by Mission United, they represent less than 18% of the local veteran population.
We envision the 757 as a place where every person has the opportunity to thrive. To achieve this vision, we must all do our part to create a more inclusive, equitable community. We’re coming alongside neighborhoods, having hard conversations, partnering with communities of color and investing in equitable initiatives for the 757. Will you join us? Make your gift below and GEICO will match it dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000!
