United Way of Natrona County will begin accepting requests for proposals from nonprofit organizations for its 2023 workplace campaign, according to a prepared statement.

"The success of our United Way has always been attributed to the quality of people who live and work in Natrona County," United Way CEO Nikki Hawley said in the prepared statement.

""Every contribution of time and treasure involves personal sacrifices," Hawley said. "The success of our United Way rightfully goes to the people of Natrona County who continue to step up and show their individual and community strength of character in tough times."
