Is getting your kids to eat healthy a challenge? It doesn't have to be. Join North Shore United Way’s Women in Action for a panel discussion on “Making Mealtime Fun and Healthy for Children and Families”. The evening will feature insight and practical advice from Sally Sampson, founder and director of ChopChop magazine, winner of the prestigious 2013 James Beard Award for Publication of the Year; John Sarrouf, director, The Family Dinner Project; and Dr. George Papanicolaou, of Cornerstone Family Practice.
The North Shore United Way supports over 25 non-profit organizations in Beverly, Rockport, Gloucester, Ipswich, Hamilton, Wenham, Essex and Manchester-by-the-Sea. It is often the last line of defense for many local non-profits that can't make ends meet and need additional support.
North Shore United Way is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of the communities in which we work. To achieve our mission, we:
- Focus our resources on the Critical Needs of Youth and Child Development, Health and Financial Stability
- Raise funds and direct those funds locally to help our neighbors in need
- Identify and fund emerging, promising programs with Discretionary Grants
- Utilize a Community Impact process that engages community volunteers to conduct rigorous reviews of each program's goals, outcomes and financial management before funds are allocated
- Facilitate collaboration among service agencies to deliver real, long-term solutions that work
