We Made GOAL!!!!
United Way finishes off 2017 by making our goal for the year and are excited to be marching into 2018 to celebrate our 100 year Anniversary of serving Carlisle and Cumberland County.
A total of $1,452,758 has been raised through current and expected pledges to support community-based programs.
The 2017 United Way campaign began this summer with more than 100 companies and 86 volunteers participating and ended with more than 2,300 donors pledging their support to United Way. Many thanks to our campaign Co-Chairs Tom Bream of Integrity Bank, and Greg Hall of Smith Elliott Kearns & Company.
In addition to announcing the totals from this year’s campaign, special recognition to several top performing companies including: Tuckey Companies, Allen Distribution and Giant Food Stores with the Campaign Award of Excellence for Small, Medium, and Large Company. Also receiving recognition was Carlisle CARES, Most Improved Award.
Division Chairman Awards were presented to UPMC Pinnacle Carlisle, Carlisle Family YMCA, Tuckey Companies, M&T Bank, Dickinson College, Giant Food Stores, Keen Transport, Allen Distribution and Frog, Switch & Manufacturing Company.
The winner of the grand prize Travel United package sponsored by M&T Bank was Jeff Swope from Bosler Library.
As is the case every year, the dollar total announced includes contributions already turned in or reported, as well as estimated or conservative projected final figures on a number of campaigns still underway.
Next year’s campaign co-chairs are Jen Burd of M&T Bank and Dave Metz of Morgan Stanley.
We thank the community for its generous support during this campaign year and encouraged anyone wishing to donate to the United Way to do so by calling (717) 243-4805 or donating online at www.uwcarlisle.org/donate.
