The United Way of Southern Chautauqua County is ecstatic to host their Campaign Kickoff and New Office Open House on Thursday, September 6th from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. at 208 Pine Street in Jamestown.
“It just seems fitting to welcome the community to our new offices along with kicking off our 2018 United Way campaign.” States Executive Director, Amy Rohler. “We’re incredibly grateful for the community and business support we received to renovate this space.” Hopes Windows, D&S Glass, Ahlstrom-Schaeffer Electric, Lewis & Lewis, PC, Allied Alarm, and E.E. Austin, along with the Ralph C. Sheldon Foundation, the Lenna Foundation and the Jessie Smith Darah Fund all make significant donations towards the completion of the project.
This years’ messaging for the campaign is “United We Fight. United We Win.” States Cynde Johnson, Resource Development and Marketing Coordinator, “when our community cares enough to come together, we do win and the collaboration with our community partners, local businesses and volunteers are a true reflection of this statement.” Johnson added that 100% of all donations stays locally within Southern Chautauqua County.
The campaign video will be shown at the event, and showcases the impact of United Way in the community.
United Way of Southern Chautauqua County seeks to raise more than $1.3 million to invest in 39 programs that align with four priorities: ensuring that families are self-sufficient, everyone is ready to work, young people succeed in school, and those in need can find help. A collective effort by a strong team of dedicated volunteers, staff and community leaders will ban together and fight to reach this goal.
