United Way Galveston hosts open house Wednesday night The United Way Galveston held an open house for its new office on the second floor of the railroad museum on Wednesday (2/1/2023) night with the Galveston Chamber of Commerce and several other notable Galveston residents in attendance. Lindsey White, the executive director for United Way Galveston, made three announcements before the chamber ribbon cutting. United Way Galveston will be celebrating its 100th birthday on Sept. 23 and White said details of the upcoming event will be released in the coming months. Publisher Leonard Woolsey of the Galveston County Daily News presented White with a check for $10,000 to the United Way to help with funding for upcoming events and projects. White also announced that work will begin over Spring Break on a Born Learning Trail at Adoue Park, which is located near Rosenberg Elementary. The United Way is partnering with the Nia Cultural Center to construct the Born Learning Trail, with inspiration coming from similar learning opportunities in League City and Texas City. Volunteers will be needed to help with the Born Learning Trail and White said to stay tuned for more information on upcoming events United Way Galveston has on the calendar for the coming year.
