COVID-19 RESPONSE AND RESOURCES

United Way of North Central Ohio is mobilizing to direct resources and support to the agencies who are tasked with meeting the needs of the community during this COVID19 outbreak and its consequences. Please consider making a donation to the United Way of North Central Ohio’s Community Relief Fund – all donations will be used to support the near- and long-term COVID19 response efforts in our community, and you can designate your donation to be used in Crawford, Marion, or Wyandot.

We’ve added a COVID-19 Response & Resources page to our website to use as a clearinghouse for parents, seniors, and others looking for local information and advice. We’ll be adding information as we receive it, but circumstances are changing continually; please check with individual agencies and organizations to confirm.

I consider the United Way my personal philanthropic advisor to determine how to best utilize my dollars for the betterment of the Toledo community."

What has Pat been doing to stay inspired and motivated during these challenging times? In his words, "I am inspired first hand by my coworkers at The Andersons who have been working all this time as an essential Food & Agriculture business. I am also inspired by hearing about the front line workers who are helping all those who are sick. I am motivated by trying to help my company and community get through the pandemic."

United Way Workplace Campaign

Live United!

The United Way Workplace Campaign unites employees in all offices or branches of a company, and gives them an opportunity to donate, volunteer and speak out for causes that matter to them. You can see the results in your own backyard, even as you’re part of a larger mission to affect change worldwide.

Employers who participate in workplace campaigns find benefits beyond the immediate impact in the community,  including more engaged employees and an enhanced spirit of corporate volunteerism.

Workplace Campaign Toolkit

We appreciate the efforts of local businesses and organizations in supporting and administering United Way Workplace Campaigns and are committed to doing everything we can to support each Campaign Coordinator based on the individual needs of their workplace. Available support includes interactive in-person training, annual Campaign Coordinator Luncheon, shared guidance and encouragement from experienced Coordinators, employee engagement support, and United Way staff support and marketing materials.
