According to a news release from the local United Way chapter, this year’s campaign will continue to address new challenges as the community works together to find innovative ways to support those most impacted by the pandemic.
“This year’s campaign will continue with the theme of ‘Local Love’ and how this local love can be seen in action and in response as our community continues to adapt to the current circumstances,” the news release stated.
The campaign will begin on Friday, September 10th, 2021.
