Common Good


Findlay, OH (Dec. 9, 2020) United Way of Hancock County will continue to seek additional support through the end of the year due to the pandemic’s impact on fundraising efforts and ongoing unemployment.

The impact of the corona virus (COVID-19) has multiplied the demand on local nonprofits to provide more services to an increased number of Hancock County residents with less resources. Cancellation of third-party fundraisers due to social distancing protocols has created a decrease in anticipated donations forcing modifications to budgets as well as programming.
