United Airlines has announced it is granting USD 1.0m to Denver nonprofit Warren Village that helps low-income, single-parent families make the journey from poverty to self-sufficiency, the company said.
United´s investment will provide both program and growth support for Warren Village, including improvements to the program and a focus on increasing participation. Additionally, United will be engaging their Denver employees in a variety of volunteer activities with Warren Village.
The announcement is the fourth in a series of announcements United is making in all of its domestic hub markets over the coming weeks. Each grant is a part of a total of $8 million in grants to help address critical needs identified by local leadership in each of its hub market communities — Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Newark/New York and Washington, D.C.
Throughout these four-year grants, United will work hand-in-hand with local organizations and engage with city and community leadership to create profound, sustainable advancements. Future announcements will include grant recipients in New York/New Jersey, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
United Airlines and United Express operate approximately 4,600 flights a day to 354 airports across five continents.
Warren Village exists so that low-income, single-parent families can achieve sustainable personal and economic self-sufficiency.
