Lives in Hancock County are being improved, and it’s all because of the power of working together.
Because we believe so much in the work that United Way of Hancock County is doing, we are proud to lead the workplace fundraising movement for 2016. We want to continue to do our part to change lives and make a difference in Hancock County. You can too.
By giving what you can, by advocating for our cause, and volunteering your time and talent we can improve even more lives.
Let’s outdo ourselves this year for our neighbors in need. Let’s help preschool students have access to quality pre-kindergarten. Let’s offer a single parent the job training needed to support his or her family and gain financial independence. Let’s provide a senior adult with food and transportation to medical treatment.
TOGETHER, we can create a Hancock County where residents thrive from McComb to Arcadia, Van Buren to Arlington, all corners of Findlay and everywhere in between. Help us build a community where every person has access to a successful and self-sufficient future.
United Way’s annual workplace campaign is an ideal opportunity to connect to the programs and projects making a difference right here. Together, collectively, we can improve people’s lives in Hancock County.
