2022 Building Bridges to Brighter Futures Campaign

Hi! We're Chris Adams and Amanda Hilliard. We are so excited to have the roles of United Way of Indiana County Campaign Co-Chairs this year.

Like many of you, we're both very attached to Indiana County. We've made our homes here, have found meaningful work here, and are raising our kids here.

When we're not on a ballfield or ice rink, we keep busy enjoying local events, supporting our Indiana County restaurants and small businesses, as well as, enjoying local adventures.

While our lives are full of opportunities, we also get a glimpse of need. It's not subtle or isolated. It exists in every pocket of our county. Too many families not making ends meet. Too many kids are without healthy lifestyles.

With need, comes the chance for change and impact and improvement. We've observed that there are gaps to bridge through all Indiana County communities so that more families can have access to resources that help them have their basic needs met.

In our roles with the United Way of Indiana County, we want to help bridge those gaps. That's one of the reasons the theme for this year's fundraising campaign is "Building Bridges to Brighter Futures." We believe that building the bridges that create and connect a network of communities, schools, leaders, and donors from all areas of Indiana County can help us work together to fulfill the needs of our neighbors now and in the future.

We are proud to represent this year's United Way campaign, and we invite you to help us create a difference in Indiana County by making your donation today!
