Today, we are asking everyone in our community to #StandUnited against violence, hate and discrimination.

Please read a statement from our President Mark Stewart, regarding the recent rash of violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders:

United Way of Bartholomew County is horrified with the recent examples of xenophobia, racism, discrimination, and violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and we mourn the loss of the eight people who lost their lives in Atlanta, Georgia because of such racism and discrimination.

We call on everyone in our community to stand against violence, discrimination, and racism in all forms. We all have a role to play in creating a more equitable, safe future for all. We must all come together to call out discrimination and violence when we see it, or we are complicit in any abuses that follow. We Stand United for our friends, neighbors, and colleagues of Asian descent who add cultural richness, diversity, and success to our community and economy.

Join us to Stand United to make our community the safe, equitable, respectful, and opportunity-filled place it should be. We can and should all do better to guarantee the basic human rights and safety of all our neighbors.

Please watch this video to see how UWBC works to make Bartholomew County a safe and equitable place for everyone: https://untdwy.org/395S2jr.

One year ago today, we launched our Covid-19 Relief Fund.

Our community stepped up in a huge way. Individuals, businesses and our long-time corporate partners came together to contribute more than $600,000.

Those resources allowed us to ensure that more than 4,500 of our neighbors had their critical needs met during a world wide crisis. Many of the people and families who sought help from the fund had never asked for assistance before.

Thank you to everyone who supported our fund. You made a difference in Bartholomew County.

If you are spring cleaning, consider donating some of those household goods to Sans Souci!

San Souci is a certified United Way agency that works so our neighbors can “live without worry.”

#LiveUnited #BartholomewCounty

Have you been taking advantage of the beautiful weather to do some spring cleaning? Sans Souci could use your donation support!

Donations are crucial to the work we do for our community and we rely 100% on community members to donate their gently used items. Your items = community members living life “without worry!”

We are open Monday-Friday from 10-5 for donation drop off or, if you live in Bartholomew County, call 812-372-3419 for a FREE pickup!

Thank you for your consideration of supporting Sans Souci!

As Toyota Forklift continues their campaign, we wanted to thank them for all the volunteer work they do in our community.

Toyota is a consistent corporate leader for our annual Day of Service and Day of Caring. TMH associates have built ramps for our neighbors, spruced up a partner agency and done heavy work at the Columbus Youth Camp.

Their dedication to helping Columbus carry the load has also led to volunteer work with our VITA tax prep program and Holiday Assistance. Toyota became a pencil sponsor for the Bartholomew County School Supply Assistance program, helping ensure nearly 1,800 students had the supplies they needed to begin school.

We couldn't do what we do without amazing partners like Toyota. Toyota knows how to #LiveUnited.

Congratulations to Starving Artists for winning the People's Choice Award for this year's CANstruction.

Their structure: "Now Showing: Hunger Games," also snagged Best Meal, Most Cans, and Best Structural Ingenuity from the judging panel!

Sunrise Rotary won Best Use of Labels and Best Original Design with its entry “The Red Cardinal: A Sign of Comfort and Hope.”

Thank you to ALL the teams who participated, the judges, and everyone who voted! Because of you, our local food pantries will have more resources to help our neighbors who are food insecure.

Collectively, the event raised 15,496 cans and $8,862. All cans and donations were split between Community Center of Hope, Salvation Army and Love Chapel.

‘United Way does so much for the community in which I live and work.’

Toyota Forklift is nearly one week into #Campaign2020!

We would like to thank all the Toyota associates who are making lasting change in our community by serving as valued board members for UWBC and our partner agencies. These incredible individuals are certainly helping our community carry the load.

They include:

✔️ Danielle Nickerson: Human Services, Inc.

✔️ Mike Heyden: Family Service, Inc.

✔️ Sheena Seger: Foundation For Youth

✔️ Neil Jenner: Family Service, Inc.

✔️ Robin Gill: United Way of Bartholomew Co

As a UWBC board member, Robin has given us insight into her passion for Toyota and United Way. Check out a Q and A with Robin Gill below 👇🏽

❓ What is your role at Toyota? ❓

At Toyota, I am part of the Strategic Planning Group. I assist in managing our Annual Operating Objectives and facilitating company review sessions. I also collaborate with our vast US dealer network to supply American Red Cross with forklifts for disaster relief efforts. Both of these roles are extremely rewarding.

❓How did you get involved with United Way? ❓

I started out my involvement in non-profits at Family Service, a certified United Way agency, where I served as a Board member for six years. During that time, I also helped run the United Way campaign at a previous employer, which created exposure to the wonderful people who work at United Way. Developing that relationship led to a leadership opportunity with a new group at United Way, called Emerging Leaders. Emerging Leaders led to a United Way Board seat, and I could not be more excited to be involved on the Board level.

❓ Why have you chosen United Way as a cause you are passionate about? ❓

United Way does so much for the community in which I live and work. What really stands out to me is that the focus lies specifically on identifying the needs of the community and developing a foundation of work to improve these determined areas. Each UW certified agency provides a piece to the puzzle of bettering our community, and it is remarkable to see that puzzle come to life.
