United Way for Spoon River Country

2014 United Way Campaign Time!!!!  

To “Live United” means that we are willing to be part of something bigger than ourselves. It means that we are willing to invest in our friends, neighbors and community.  Our United Way is a leader in community problem solving and a great mechanism to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another.  As you know, the needs are greater than ever due to the many challenges we face as a society and our network of 14 partner agencies help to create a tremendous system of health and human services throughout the region.  But, we need your help!

As a Fulton County resident, you may be interested to know that…   

5,000 residents in Fulton County are living in poverty. 

 4,300 Fulton County residents are unemployed. 

Domestic violence is on the rise in households throughout our community.  

1 out of 3 girls and 1 out of 6 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18.

Thanks to your support, help is available in many forms through the United Way for Spoon River Country. In 2012, United Way reached nearly twenty thousand Fulton County residents!  That’s an incredible reach, and it involves twenty local programs.  

Your contribution to United Way continues to ensure that: Counseling and shelter is available to victims of domestic and sexual violence. People who have lost their homes to fire are able to buy necessities and start putting their lives back together. Hot meals are available to elderly residents unable to afford their own meals and delivered to those who are home bound.  

 United Way is also about providing life-changing opportunities, such as: mentors who share their time, experiences and compassion with young people a chance for people with intellectual and physical disabilities to experience athletics and summer camp in safe, fun and supportive environments  

 Your contribution to United Way is an investment in Fulton County – it stays here to improve lives and strengthen our community. United Way depends on your support!

The United Way has brought together people and resources to build a safety net to help meet the needs of our friends, neighbors, co-workers and families.

 A constant reminder that when we as individuals think outside ourselves, we have the power to facilitate change. When we think of others’ lives as linked to our own, our compassion grows. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our communities. And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day.
