United Way’s record breaking campaign

online charity auction

The United Way of the Northern Shenandoah Valley announced the 2021-2022 campaign was one of their most successful in the organization’s history raising over $1 million dollars to serve the community.

The majority of those funds were raised through workplace giving programs and individual donations.

The organizations that contributed the most through workplace giving include Trex, Valley Health, and Navy Federal.

The United Way had a huge increase in requests over the past year and would not be able to serve those community members without these donations.

The money will be used for the United Way’s Impact Grants as well as to expand and maintain their flagship program, the Valley Assistance Network.

According to an email from the UWNSV this is $35,000 more than was distributed last year and $100,000 over 2020.

Twenty seven agencies based in Winchester, Frederick and Clarke Counties will receive over $379,000 in funding.

Nine agencies in Shenandoah and Page Counties will receive over $160,000 in funding.

In addition the United Way will distribute over $147,000 in donor designated funds to various agencies across the service area.

The review process involves 50 community volunteers who review funding applications and focus on priority human care needs.
