Join us and support Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way as it launches the 2016 fundraising campaign with a special event on Monday, September 12 from 5:30-7:30 PM at Penn Tavern in Sunbury. United Way, serving Northumberland, Snyder and Union Counties, invites the public to attend the campaign celebration and the cost is $10/person. Sponsored by Service 1st, the event will include heavy hors d’oeuvres and cash bar. There will also be a brief presentation by staff, volunteers and friends of United Way on current work focused on community impact, as well as the first public showing of the new campaign video featuring several community partners and volunteers.

Greater Susquehanna Valley United Way is focusing this year’s campaign on programs making a positive, measurable difference around six community-identified needs known as the ”Priorities For Impact” and include: Transportation, Early Childhood Education, Diversity & Inclusion, Behavioral Health & Addiction, Financial Stability and Teens. Basic Needs for all residents is also a focus of this year’s campaign, as United Way believes every person in every community deserves access to food, clothing and a safe place to live.
