Dear Supporter:

The foundation of the United Way is to mobilize the caring power of Indiana County.  An organization like the United Way is in a uniquely different position where they were challenged to continue meeting the needs around us, while being called to respond to the additional community needs caused by the COVID crisis.

It was truly inspiring to be able to help solve problems this year.  We established an Emergency Relief Fund which put $87,000 into the hands of those who lost employment due to COVID.  We also brought schools and nonprofits together to address food security for school children, and took over financial management of a meal delivery program for seniors.

These projects were front and center while continuing support to our partner agencies, who adapted to provide essential services to address addiction, domestic violence, and physical and mental health for children.   These needs don't go away in times of crisis, in fact, they often become amplified.

This year's fundraising campaign is unique in that we know there is so much work to do during a challenging time, but we know that TOGETHER we have the means and strength to do it.

Your donations are needed now more than ever.  We ask that you join us in moving forward together, supporting one another because, ultimately, we are in this together.  Let us help make Indiana County #CommunityStronger!
