About United Way of Pictou County

As Pictou County changes and grows, United Way is committed to meeting the needs of our community.  We are one of the largest non-government funder of social services in Pictou County.  In fact, funds raised here stay here in Pictou County. A gift to United Way changes lives and builds a strong, healthy and safe community.

In good times and tough times, our community comes together to make sure that important programs and services are available to people who need help, when they need help.  Together, we can improve lives locally!
