United Way of Mifflin-Juniata raised $410,000 during the
2018 campaign. These funds will be used
to meet local needs in the impact areas of education, income, and health. This
final total is approximately 86% of the $475,000 goal. “I want to express my
appreciation to everyone who supported the United Way either by contributing or
assisting with solicitations,” said Oksana DeArment, Executive Director.
The amount raised is a positive reflection of the generosity
of the community, however, it is not nearly enough to fully meet the needs of
the agencies providing after school programs, youth mentoring programs and
support for basic needs.
“This was a challenging year in many ways,” said Oksana
DeArment. The non-profit organization underwent leadership changes during the
campaign. DeArment notes that the Board of Directors was instrumental in
keeping the campaign going.
The shortfall in available funds means that the Community
Investment volunteers will have to make some difficult decisions moving forward
on how to invest the limited dollars. Their decisions will take into account
the impact that programs have on our most vulnerable populations. Contributions are accepted all year round if
anyone wishes to make a donation. Thank
you to everyone for helping us LIVE UNITED.
The United Way of Mifflin Juniata is dedicated to fulfilling our
mission: Improving people's lives by mobilizing the caring
power of the community.
