Grandezza Community Campaign
Thank you to all that participated in the 2019-2020 United Way Campaign. You raised a total of $176,557. Your generosity last year assisted in providing support to more than 90 local agencies and over 250 programs in our community. Grandezza has been contributing to United Way since 2008 with a total raised of $921,390! That is very exciting and we are so grateful.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has presented historic challenges to our community. The need is at the greatest level ever and it is likely to continue for months to come. People who have never needed assistance before are now visiting mobile food distributions just so they can feed their families, and the stress of the pandemic has created a spike in mental health needs for all ages.
Over the past six months, our United Way has mobilized resources, convened partners, and created immediate impact. Additionally, United Way 211 has seen a 70% increase in incoming calls. Our United Way network of Partner Agencies are also seeing record numbers of clients needing assistance. In addition, some companies, who normally donate, are not able to do so this year, due to economic impact.
We hope you will join us by participating in the 2020-2021 United Way Campaign. The theme for the United Way 2020-2021 Campaign is Rise to the Challenge. The committee is actively working on events appropriate for all of us. We need your support now, more than ever. Remember, all donations stay in our community. Stay tuned for Save the Dates.
