Thousands have given, and to those, we thank you. Unfortunately, at this time, we are falling short of what we were able to raise last year, and we need your help to continue to provide the valuable programs and services that have kept Fulton County a great place to live.
We realize this is an extremely difficult year for everyone, with high fuel prices having an effect on everything we do. We understand that a gift to United Way may not be easy, but we ask that you give what you can so we can help those in our community who are in need.
Our United Way has made many changes over the years. We are no longer “just a fundraiser”. We develop or are involved in many community projects that make a lasting difference in people’s lives. We don’t put “Band-Aids” on problems. We look to see what is causing the problem and work to correct it. That’s why your gift to United Way is such an important investment. Programs supported through United Way help over 15,000 Fulton County residents each year. Examples of our work in the past year includes: providing back packs with school supplies to over 800 children, feeding over 1,170 meals to children through the summer food program, feeding over 2,700 families through supported food pantries, assisting cancer clients financially to drive over 17,250 miles in order to receive medical treatments, and so much more!
We hope that you will join us in our efforts to build a stronger and healthier community.
Thank you for your generous consideration. Contributions can be mailed to 604 S. Shoop Ave, Suite 122, Wauseon, OH 43567.
