Then less than a week later, on Tuesday, September 16, Monadnock United Way hosted its second kickoff event at the The Village at RiverMead in Peterborough in front of another packed room. In Peterborough, Round announced that additional early donations of $13,150, increased the total raised-to-date to $568,345, or 27% of the goal!
A BIG THANK YOU TO THIS YEAR’S MONADNOCK UNITED WAY
CAMPAIGN KICKOFF SPONSOR:
2014-15 Campaign Goal: $2,106,234
The 2014-2015 Monadnock United Way Campaign goal and theme were announced by John Round, General Campaign Chair, at a Campaign briefing held at Home Healthcare Hospice and Community Services on Friday morning, July 18. With help from several campaign volunteers, the campaign goal of $2,106,234 was announced and this year’s theme ‘WONDER…’ was revealed!
Fifty programs administered by 27 partner agencies across the Monadnock Region’s 36 towns will benefit from what is raised during the campaign. In keeping with this year’s theme, Round stated, “We wonder at the region’s generosity in giving its time, talent, and treasure for those who require the critical services our partner agencies provide. We wonder at the level of trust the hundreds of volunteers each year bestow on us when their responsibilities are many and they still carve out space to support our mission. And we wonder at the significance of the impact our fifty local partner programs demonstrate on behalf of their clients every day. On behalf of the staff, board, Campaign Cabinet, and volunteers associated with the 2014-15 Annual Campaign, I thank you for your support and welcome you to WONDER at all we can do!”
The official Campaign Kickoff is scheduled for, Thursday, September 11, 2014 from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Keene Country Club.
