Advocate for Healthy Living
On June 21st, United Way advocates from around the nation will storm Capitol Hill to advocate for key priorities including our nation’s largest anti-hunger program, SNAP – the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. We need to defend SNAP against potential cuts which would take away food from children, older Americans, people with disabilities and veterans.
To show your support you can add your voice to these advocacy efforts from where-ever you are on June 21st.
Join this 'digital event' online or follow Rapp United Way social media (LINK HERE) to help us amplify our impact on June 21st. It can be as simple as sharing a post or retweeting a message of support.
Too many families — including children, seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities — struggle to make ends meet. SNAP works to put food on the table and ensure families don’t have to make tough choices between food, gas to get to work, medications, or rent. Tell Congress to Protect SNAP
