United Way


4th Annual Circle of Friends Celebration

United Way of Kern County's Circle of Friends Celebration is a time to highlight programs, services and events we have put on that made an impact in the community, and to honor those in our community who so graciously helped us along the way. We would be unable to do what we do without those who rise to the occasion and give their time, resources, donations, and skills for the betterment of the community of Kern County. We want to extend a great thank you to everyone who showed up to help in 2022 and looking forward to 2023.

What to expect

During this appreciation event, we will be showcasing United Way of Kern County’s programs and services and taking time to thank everyone who raised their hands to Help Kern Stay Strong in 2022. This is a cocktail affair event, and we will begin at 6:00 pm with words from UWKC staff and presenting awards to leaders in the community who help make the wins in 2022 possible!
