United Way exceeds and reaches 114% of goal

United Way Announces: Exceeds and Reaches 114% of goal while we reflect on how much was accomplished, we know there's still more to do. New Year is the perfect day to dream of a brighter future for Miami County.

The United Way for Miami County is proud to announce their 2020 Campaign total of $177,800, surpassing the campaign goal of $155,000 by $22,800 and the 2019 campaign by $10,800.

When the campaign began in August during this unprecedented year of pandemic, with industries laying off, local businesses struggling, job losses, and uncertainties, the Campaign Cabinet knew the needs would be more this year. The Cabinet challenged their volunteers to meet as many of those needs; as possible.

Our theme this year was People Helping People Funding Solutions. 2020 was a challenging year for everyone in our community. But Miami County stepped up and responded to the unprecedented need and gives us hope; for a better tomorrow.

The generosity of so many people, both with time and monetary gifts, shows that the people of Miami County have big hearts and are willing to work for everyone's health, education, and financial stability in Miami County.

Thank you to all the People Helping People, Funding Solutions for Miami County. The funds will help us meet our vision and enhance the lives of all Miami County citizens.

United Way of Miami County will provide direction and accountability to promote education, income, and financial independence to all citizens in Miami County in 2021.

Congratulations, Miami County!
