Five years ago, in 2019, I had the honor of serving as your Campaign Chair, and together, we achieved incredible milestones. I am excited to reconnect with you as the 2024 Campaign Chair for the United Way of Indiana County. Our mission to make Indiana County a better place for all continues and your support is crucial.

Whether it’s providing educational resources, health services, or financial stability programs, the United Way is here to uplift every individual. Indiana County is more than a place- it’s our home. It’s where we work, raise families, and build memories. I have seen firsthand the difference we can make, and the power of our community, and I am confident that this year will be filled with opportunities to further our impact.

With a focus on connection, prevention, and essential aid, the United Way of Indiana County continues to stand at the forefront of community service, ensuring that every individual and family has access to the resources they need.

These investments are more than a financial contribution, they are the seeds of hope, growth, and resilience for our children and families. We hope that you will consider sponsoring our events to help pave the way for a future where every individual in Indiana County has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Together, let’s continue to make our town a beacon of hope and opportunity by “Reaching Greater Heights”.
