Community partners, donors, businesses, and government representatives gathered to celebrate the success of the 2022 United Way Northumberland Campaign at the annual Campaign Achievement Breakfast.
United Way Northumberland recognized the community’s collective achievement and announced that their 2022 Campaign raised over $900,000 for our community.
“We could not do what we do without all of you,” says Maggie Darling, Acting Executive Director, United Way Northumberland. “Our success is the result of you, our committed donors, volunteers, and staff, who are advocates, community leaders and ambassadors of United Way.
