Wear jeans to work to help United Way

Denim Day 2019

PERU – United Way of Miami County is almost half way to its campaign goal that ends Dec. 31.

“Every little bit helps when it comes to helping provide basic needs for our residents,” Wallick said.

“Sometimes people just think, well, it’s taken care of. They’re OK without my contribution,” Wallick said. “Our message right now is we’re not OK without your donation.”

United Way of Miami County is encouraging all of Miami County to participate in United Way Denim Day. The week of Nov. 25 - 29 and Dec. 9 - Dec. 13. Employees can make a one-time donation of $5 to get comfy at work and help a good cause.

Wallick said one effort that could be affected by not meeting the budget would be crisis and utility assistance and helping those families that need a hand up, not a handout after  being laid off or losing their job.

United Way of Miami County has launched the “One Last Push” campaign to encourage people to donate.

People can help United Way of Miami County by creating their own fundraiser page and sharing our “One Last Push” on social media. People can also donate to United Way of Miami County by calling 765-473-4240, mailing donations to 13 E. Main St. Peru, IN 46970, and pledging online at www.uwmiamip.org;
