With your help, the United Way of the Laurel Highlands is working to advance the common good by focusing on education, income, and health. These are the building blocks for a good life; a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. The United Way's goal is to create long lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place. AmeriServ and our team of caring employees have given generously to the United Way, and hope you consider supporting your community United Way, too!
