A Message from Mary Beverly & Cindy Green, Co-chairs, 2019 United Way Campaign

It is our pleasure to serve as this year’s campaign co-chairs. This year, the campaign will run from September 27th to October 25th.

Each day, the work you do as a county employee helps shape the lives of the members of this community. We’re asking you to show your love for the Kansas City region by investing in the United Way.

One donation — your donation — benefits our entire community. And it benefits people throughout their lives, at the times when they need help the most.

We invite you to make a donation to the United Way of Greater Kansas City as an employee of Johnson County Government and a member of this community.

Here are some of the results achieved by United Way of Greater Kansas City last year:

Connecting our neighbors with support services that fit their needs.
Preparing the next generation for career and life success.
Financial Stability
Providing programs and educational resources for economic wellness.
19,866 children and adults received treatment and support for trauma and abuse. More than 9,300 children and youth participated in programs related to post-secondary and career success. Nearly 400 people were placed in jobs by United Way's Financial Opportunity Centers.
