Today and every day, we are inviting everyone to #StandUnited against racism, violence and inequities.

Please read a statement from our President Mark Stewart, regarding recent events:

United Way of Bartholomew County stands with George Floyd, his family and everyone impacted by the recent acts of racism and violence. We all have a role to play in creating a more equitable future.

We must come together to call out discrimination and demand its removal from our community; otherwise, we are endorsing the status quo and are complicit in the abuses that follow.

We are asking you to stand United to make our community the place it needs to be – equitable, respectful and opportunity-filled. We as a community, can and must do better to guarantee that the basic human rights, freedoms, and opportunities of every person in our community are protected.

🎉🎉LIVE UNITED PARTNER🎉🎉

Today we would like to celebrate our next LIVE UNITED partner, 450 North Brewing Company and Simmons Winery

They teamed up with Brooklyn, New York based brewery, Other Half Brewing Company to concoct a beer that will help people struggling after COVID-19.

The brew, "All Together," is an India pale ale that was sold and launched last month. Part of the proceeds from the sale are going to benefit the portion of our COVID-19 Relief Fund that supports hospitality workers.

The company worked to get a special beer out as a way to help 450 North employees and other local hospitality workers.

450 North and Simmons Winery truly know how to #LiveUnited

Have you been doing some quarantine cleaning and purging?

Did you box up those shirts that don't fit and those tools you never use?
Sans Souci would be happy to take them off your hands! They are now scheduling donation pickups.

Check out the details below ⬇️⬇️⬇️

❗️BIG UPDATE! ❗️We’ve never been more excited to say “schedule your pickup today!”

Sans Souci is officially open for pickups! The donation drop-off option will be coming in the next couple of weeks and the store will hopefully reopen in accordance with Phase Four of the Indiana “Back on Track” plan, which is currently set for June 14th!

Please note that Sans Souci has to enforce some prior policies and put some new policies into place for our pickup service:
-You must reside within Bartholomew County
-For the safety and protection of our drivers, we are not allowing them to go inside homes
-We are asking that all pickups are completed contactless
-Please do not schedule a pickup if someone in your household has been sick within the past 14 days

You are all absolutely amazing- we are blown away by the support and loyalty you have shown us during this time. Your donations and support have a real impact our entire community as we work to help people live their life “without worry!”

The Bartholomew County School Supply Assistance Program is ratcheting up and could use your help!

This program is an effort from multiple agencies and community members who endeavor to make sure every child in Bartholomew County has the supplies they need to have a successful school year. They need donations for the 2020-2021 school year.

Our generous community has helped approximately 2,000 students annually, but more kids will likely need your help this year due to the economic impact of COVID-19.

This year, you can see the impact you are making by buying items directly for backpacks from the program's Amazon wish list. Those items will then be directly shipped to program organizers! Every item counts, and there are items for every budget.

To buy an item off the wish list, go here: https://bddy.me/2WefmEp

We are incredibly grateful and humbled to be able to call a business like Cummins Inc our community partner.

Our community is doing a great job working together and finding ways to support each other during this pandemic.

To help respond to the #COVID19 pandemic we've announced additional efforts to help protect the needs of health care professionals.

The 3M designed filters will be made in Cummins’ Neillsville, Wisconsin, plant. Read more: https://cummins.tech/hci1ln

It is National Volunteer Week and we would like to take this time to thank ALL of our volunteers.

Thanks to their help, we completed 172 agency and residential projects in the last year during Day of Caring and Day of Service.

We also ensured just over 1,900 Bartholomew County children had the supplies needed for a successful school year, helped over 1,200 community members file their taxes, saving over $100,000 in filing fees, and made the holidays memorable to over 1,200 of the nearly 3,200 children registered for holiday programs.

All of this would not be possible without YOU and YOUR support of United Way of Bartholomew County.

Our volunteers truly know how to #LiveUnited

Our organization has been blown away by the creativity, kindness and generosity of countless Bartholomew County residents throughout this unprecedented time.

This week we would like to spotlight our LIVE UNITED PARTNER, Angela Jackson Photography

We are grateful to Angela Jackson for helping bring joy to local families, all while helping support our local community.

While following social distancing guidelines, Angie offered Columbus and Nashville families ‘FRONT STEP’ photo sessions to capture their every day lives during the pandemic. No fancy clothes or props, just love and laughter during a time when its needed most.

Along with the memories she helped to create, she is also directing 50% of all photo session donations to United Way of Bartholomew County (Columbus residents) & Mother’s Cupboard Community Kitchen (Nashville residents).

A special thank you to Angela Jackson Photography for sharing her talent and generosity with us. To check out more of Angie’s work, please visit: https://bddy.me/2XWJ430
