United Way of Mower County raises nearly $1.1 million during 2020 Community Campaign
The United Way of Mower County announced Tuesday that their 2020 Community Campaign raised just shy of $1.1 million dollars. Jacob Steiner, Marketing and Resource Development Coordinator with the United Way of Mower County stated to KAUS that 2,500 individuals, 30 community-minded businesses and two foundations allowed the UWMC to allocate critical funds to several non-profit partners coordinating a number of programs around Mower County….
Steiner went on to state that the funds were raised despite the fact that the UWMC, like many other charitable organizations, faced unprecedented fundraising challenges in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that ultimately led to a 14% campaign decline after a record-breaking fundraising year in 2019….
Programs provide services in Mower County in the areas of Health, Education, Financial Stability, and Basic Needs, and engage community members across all demographics in a variety of settings.
