"We call this a generational campaign," explained Campaign Co-chair
Debbie Morgan, "when we help a person, we help a family, when we help a family, we help a community."
Poverty can be generational, prosperity can be generational, at United Way, we choose prosperity for every individual and family. The 2016-2017 annual fundraising campaign wrapped up with a celebration at Grand Harbor Club graciously sponsored by HealthFirst Health Plans. Indian River County residents, both young and old, came together to express their appreciation for United Way, sharing their experiences and holding up numbers demonstrating the $3,051,063 raised through the campaign.
“We know that most of us in this room make donations to United Way, as well as donating our time to keep the work going.
To every employee who gifted through their workplace payroll deduction;
To the small business and local professionals who supported the United Way cause;
To the individuals in our Leadership Investment Association, our ever-growing Alexis de Tocqueville Society and, of course, our Loyal Contributors;'
To ALL of our donors, regardless of the size of your contribution;
