The second campaign update for United Way of Clinton County Iowa showed gains toward their $650,000 goal, though falling behind last year’s fundraising numbers around the same time. Restrictions on in-person events has taken its toll on fundraising this year, along with the economic hardships of area residents and businesses who use Workplace Giving programs. This year our community residents will need more help than before, help with food, rent, and other basic needs assistance.
A gift to United Way supports more than 30 local programs that fight for financial stability, health and wellness, and youth success. Any contribution, no matter the amount, makes a difference. Gifts stay local to help local families by funding programs at a number of local partner agencies such as The Associate Benevolent Society, Information Referral and Assistance Service, and Iowa Legal Aid. It takes everyone working together to create a brighter future for all.
