The St. Marys Area United Way would like to thank the community for their generosity and support of the 2019 Campaign. The United Way board is pleased to report that the community has exceeded the $150,000 campaign goal for 2019. The St. Marys Area United Way relies on contributions from companies and local individuals. Those donations support the financial needs of non-profit agencies that serve the health and human welfare needs of our community. John Dippold, Board Presidents states,” We are grateful for the overwhelming support from the community and thankful we will be able to support so many well-deserving non-profit organizations in Elk County.”
Funding raised in the 2019 campaign will support nonprofit organizations in 2020. The grant deadline to apply for the 2019 Campaign funding was December 16, 2019. Currently, the organizations seeking funding for 2020 are Alcohol & Drug Abuse Services, Boys & Girls Club of St. Marys, Boy Scouts Bucktail Council, CAPSEA, Catholic Charities, Dickinson Center, Girl Scouts, Guardian Angel Center, Life and Independence for Today, St. Marys Public Library, St. Marys Recreation Board, and the Veteran Memorial. The St. Marys United Way board will be conducting agency reviews by the end of January and determining the grant awards amounts at that time.
The United Way campaign will continue until December 31, 2019. Any donations received after that date will be applied to the 2020 campaign. If you would like to become one of these individual or corporate donors, please call 781-6000 or mail your check to the St. Marys Area United Way, 44 So.
