BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) – United Way of Northwest Florida officials also attended First Friday.

They shared details about the impact they are making in the local community.

In 2023, United Way donated nearly $6 million across the Panhandle. That includes helping with the housing, food, and health needs of over 15,000 people.

The main focus point of Friday’s presentation was the need to help the asset-limited, income-constrained, employed, or Alice Group.

These are people who make more than the threshold for poverty assistance but are just getting by to pay bills.

45% of Florida households are living at or below the Alice Threshold.

“A single mother with three kids, even with a good-paying job, is still struggling to make ends meet. And so it takes organizations like United Way, like our partners, to be able to fill that gap so that they can remain stable, remain employed, continue their jobs, be focused on their jobs, and not concerned about whether they have food in the pantry,” United Way of NWFL President and CEO Gina Littleton said.
