Annual Campaign is being led by Justin Davis, CEO of
Commonwealth Health Moses Taylor Hospital and Commonwealth
We all win when students succeed in school, families are
financially stable and people are healthy. With your help, we
can change the odds for children, families and our community as
As we launch this year’s United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne
Counties Campaign it is important to recognize that each of us
can play an important role in improving the quality of life for
all of us. I believe that the best way to make a lasting
difference in the health and well-being of our community is
through support of our United Way campaign.
When you give to your United Way
your gift stays right here in our community helping more than
just one person, one family or one charity – it helps build a
stronger community for all of us. Collectively we can accomplish
so much more working toward long term solutions, not just short
Your United Way is focused on results to ensure that your gift
will make the greatest difference possible. Education, Income
and Health are the building blocks that help create
opportunities for a better life and a better community.
Following are just a few examples that you helped make possible
this past year through your United Way:
EDUCATION – more than 13,600 residents took
advantage of educational opportunities offered through a
varied array of services including day care, day camp,
leadership development and guidance programs designed to
help prepare them to succeed.
INCOME – nearly 25,000 local lives were
changed through intervention in times of crisis and personal
development guidance so they can become financially
independent to lead fulfilled and productive lives.
HEALTH – nearly 31,000 people benefited
from services to improve their health and general well-being
including preventive, counseling, treatment and safety
I am honored to serve as this year’s Campaign Chairman. Whether
you are a first time giver or someone who has supported United
Way for many years I can guarantee you that your gift is greatly
appreciated. I also serve on the United Way Board of Directors
and have seen first-hand the remarkable services made possible
by your gift to the annual campaign.
Please consider making your
commitment now! Together, UNITED, we can inspire hope and create
opportunities for a better tomorrow as we help change lives and
build stronger communities in Lackawanna and Wayne Counties.
Thank you in advance for your commitment and support!
