United Way celebrates successful 2019 Campaign
United Way of Northern Shenandoah Valley held a celebratory conclusion to their 2019 Campaign on Feb. 20. Community members and businesses across the Northern Shenandoah Valley who generously contributed through workplace campaigns, special events and individual gifts for the fundraising campaign, gathered to celebrate the incredible total raised locally in 2019 and to congratulate award winners for Volunteer of the Year and Youth Volunteer of the Year.
“We are fortunate to live in an incredibly giving community where employers and residents are willing to do what it takes to make a difference in their neighbors’ lives. We would never have raised such an incredible amount without the support of both the businesses and individuals that live right here in the Shenandoah Valley,” said 2019 Campaign Chair Jay Rudolph of Trex Company.
At the 74th Annual Meeting, United Way announced they exceeded the million-dollar mark for the 20th year in a row. In addition, United Way also passed the previous year’s donation amount raised, raising a total of $1,065,202, a more than $10,000 increase over the previous year.
United Way NSV will immediately begin distributing funds throughout the spring to area nonprofits and agencies who apply for funding through the Community Impact Grant Program.
Scott Harvard, CEO of First Bank, was given the Volunteer of the Year award and Jackson Sirbaugh, senior at John Handley High School, was given the Youth Volunteer of the Year award.
