Bartholomew County United Way kicks off annual campaign today

The United Way of Bartholomew County is kicking off its annual fundraising campaign today.

The annual fund drive supports the 17 non-profit agencies and 32 programs that are partners of the local United Way. Megan Pillar, spokeswoman for the United Way says that the campaign runs from now until about February. Unlike previous years, there will not be a large kickoff event today due to concerns over COVID-19.

The United Way’s goal is to raise $4.1 million this year.

Pillar said there will be more than 100 presentations at local businesses so people can sign up through their workplaces, but you can also donated directly online at
