The United Way of Defiance County has kicked off the 2014–15 campaign. This year’s campaign is entitled “Taking Action and Changing Lives in Defiance County.“
Donations to the United Way help fund 22 programs with agency and community partners. The campaign goal this year is to get 500 new donors to give a gift of any amount.
Officials say even a $5 donation to the United Way can make a big impact. Five dollars can get a patient to a chemotherapy appointment, provide a weekend of nutritious food for a child during the school year, or provide 250 minutes of toll-free referral or crisis help from 2–1-1.
The United Way is encouraging new donors to start by giving $1 a paycheck.
To donate or for more information, call 419–782-3510.
