Campaign Spotlight: It's Never Too Late To Give
 

The United Way of Mifflin-Juniata is appealing to the community for help in the final two months of the 2015 Campaign.  Fundraising efforts have raised $398,650 or 67% of the $595,000 goal.    

“We are so grateful to the people and businesses who have given so far – they are being as generous as they can,” said Marie Mulvihill, Executive Director.  “Now we are appealing to those who haven’t given yet to make a contribution before March 15.”      

“If the campaign falls short, the United Way partner agencies will see a drastic reduction in funding.  Programs that have a real impact on local people’s lives will lose vital funding, most of which are already stretched to the limit,” said Annette Price, United Way Board President.  She sited the Juniata Terrace Fire, where significant numbers of people were displaced due to circumstances beyond their control, but whose needs were met almost immediately by local agencies providing services because of United Way dollars. “What this means to our community is that help may not be available at a time when help is needed the most,” said Price.   

“Our goal is ambitious, but we believe it’s necessary to ensure the kind of quality community in which we all want to live and work. Whether you can invest a little or a lot, this is an opportunity to make your impact,” stressed Marie Mulvihill, Executive Director.  Mulvihill noted that approximately 10% of the 71,384 people living in the Mifflin and Juniata counties gave to the United Way last year.  In an effort to create an opportunity for more people to participate, United Way will be doing a mass residential mailing along with targeted mailings to those who have given in the past but haven’t contributed to the 2015 campaign yet.   

When you donate to the United Way, your gift goes out with the power and responsibility of helping those you encounter everyday – friends, neighbors, everyone.  Donations can be made to the United Way of Mifflin-Juniata, 13 East Third Street, Lewistown, PA, 17044, or be clicking here.
