Midway through the 2014 United Way Campaign, $450,000 has been raised.

This puts the annual campaign at close to 40% of the $1,250,000 goal with several workplace campaigns set to wrap up. In October, 135 volunteers participated in United Way's second annual meal packing event to support local food pantries. A number of local agencies will also participate in United Way's second annual meal packing event hosted by 5-2-1-0 Let's Move, a community-wide health initiative. People are volunteering with United Way projects and advocating for issues that impact Adams County.
