Johnson County Government is a major supporter of the United Way campaign. Today Chairman Ed Eilert helped kick off the 2015 campaign, whose theme this year is “Spirit of Caring.” This year’s goal for Johnson County Government employee contributions is $125,000. The campaign runs through Oct. 17.
Last year Johnson County Government employees donated more than $117,000, and pledged more per employee than any other government entity in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
The United Way network supports 320 human service programs in 170 agencies that keep our community healthy and strong. Donations to the United Way Campaign provide an important and significant portion of the funds necessary to carry out these worthy services.
