A Message From 2020 Campaign Chairs- Frank and Peg Lynch

You are an everyday hero!

As we kick off the 2020 United Way campaign, we are asking you to join us in helping our community.

Over the past few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed every aspect of our society, from our economy to our personal relationships. While much remains uncertain, it is up to each of us to help our community recover. This recovery starts with making sure that our safety net of health and human services remains strong and able to support the thousands of people relying upon their services.

For nearly 100 years, United Way has been here for our community. United Way has been here to guide local services through recessions, the great depression, and even times of war; always focused on providing opportunity and hope to thousands of families.

This year, your support is more important than ever and your gift, no matter how large or small, makes a difference.

You support this year will help make sure we not only provide for the basic needs of families but also provide access to educational supports, healthcare, job skills training, and stable housing. Your gift helps United Way’s partner programs tackle these challenges in a thoughtful and measured way.

This year we hope you join our family in support of United Way in its mission to address the basic needs, education, financial stability, and health of every person in our community. Together we can assure our community’s most critical services are available as we recover and rebuild our local economy.


Thank you,
Frank and Peg Lynch
