2016 Campaign Raised $454,000
 

United Way of Mifflin-Juniata raised $454,000 to meet local needs around the impact areas of education, income, and health. This final total is approximately 92% of the $495,000 goal. 

“This was a challenging financial year for many, both professionally and personally,” said Mike McMonigal, Executive Director. “However, I want to express my appreciation to everyone that found a way to contribute despite these circumstances. Rebuilding takes time, but we are already making plans for next year with the help of community volunteers and leaders.” 

While this amount of support reflects positively on the generosity of the community, it is not enough to fully meet the needs of the agencies providing after school programs, youth mentoring, programs and scholarships for health-related activities, and support for basic needs.    

With this shortfall in available support, the United Way will be restricting the funding application process to the programs who were previously funded for the 2015-2016 fiscal year. Community Investment volunteers will review applications to determine how to invest the limited funds, taking into account the impact that programs have on our most vulnerable populations.

The Community Investment Committee is recruiting volunteers. If you are interested in being part of this process and can commit volunteer hours in April and May, please contact the United Way office: 717-248-9636 or mmcmonigal@mjunitedway.org.

 





The United Way of Mifflin Juniata is dedicated to fulfilling our mission: Improving people's lives by mobilizing the caring power of the community.
