Ep. 15 – Women Who Lead

This week on Talk United we are discussing the great work that is being done by the women of United Way of Central Florida and our group Women United, a powerful group of women who address key issues affecting women and children in our community. To talk about that, we are joined by Stephanie Colon and Lynn Noris.

Build United is a food drive with a twist. After you and your group register to collect non-perishable food items at, we want you to build something. Turn your collected items into a castle, a pirate ship or anything else you can think of.

Register by March 29th and have your creation judged by local community leaders as well as be a part of a public vote on the UWCF Facebook Page!
