- Designating Your United Way Contribution to Friend$hare: It's that time of year when employers will be soliciting your contribution to United Way. You may designate your United Way contribution to go to Friend$hare. Fill in your United Way pledge form with the agency code ‘4441’ and the name ‘FRIEND$HARE’, along with the annual (not weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly) amount you would like to contribute to Friend$hare from your payroll deductions. Friend$hare provides one-time financial assistance to people who need urgent aid for housing, medical, transportation, utilities, education, and other emergency needs. Often, this assistance allows people to keep their housing, job, and health so they can make a fresh start in life. Friend$hare never accepts cold-calls for assistance. An applicant must be referred by a trusted source, such as a social services agency.
