2020 has been a tough year on everyone.

Our community, along with the rest of the world, was hit hard by Covid-19. The pandemic robbed our neighbors of their health and financial stability.

While Covid-19 was affecting Bartholomew County; you stepped up in so many ways. Our partner agencies still did amazing work. Businesses and individuals conducted fundraisers for our Covid-19 Relief Fund and our 2020 campaign. Volunteers used their time and effort to make the lives of families and agencies better.

Check out our video below for photos from each of our Top 10 Facebook posts. These photos are from posts that you loved the most in 2020.

We can end 2020 on a good note. Consider a donation to #Campaign2020 where your gift could help us all have a better 2021. https://bddy.me/2WXRGVl

Thank you for your effort to #LiveUnited. #Top10
