Today we officially kicked off #Campaign2022 with our Kick-Off Lunch! Thank you to everyone who attended and to Amazing Joe's Grill for hosting us.
Your pledges, gifts and contributions to the campaign will go to lift the 1 in 5 children in our community who live in poverty.
Children who live in poverty may not know where their next meal is coming from, their home situation may be unstable, and they do not have access to the same resources as their middle-class peers.
Watch our campaign video to learn more and consider a gift. A rising tide lifts all boats, and when we help children now, we are creating a better community for tomorrow.
This morning, Mayor Jim Lienhoop proclaimed Sept. 6-9 LIVE UNITED Week.
1 in 5 children in Bartholomew County lives in poverty and it will take the support of the whole community to help our most vulnerable neighbors break the chain of intergenerational poverty.
Thank you to the city for the proclamation.

Today, nearly 300 volunteers came together to make our community a better place to live.
Our Day of Caring volunteers completed important work for non-profit organizations. This selfless service will have a direct impact on everyone who calls our county home.
Bartholomew County is better because of you. Thank you for caring for your neighbors. Thank you always for your effort to #LiveUnited.

Summer can be more than a time to catch up. Kids can learn skills that help them thrive and help them reach their full potential. But, some may slip into summer learning loss if they do not have access to quality summer programming.
Our partner agencies are working to mitigate this loss for kids in our community. Find out how here ⤵️
