 The theme for the 2020-2021 Annual Campaign is “Building Bridges: Yesterday, Today, & Tomorrow” with a goal to raise $550,000.  Since the beginning the United Way has been here when we were Community Chest, we are here today especially through COVID-19 and we will continue to be here into the future leading our community. 

“We know this is a crucial time for our community and we want to be there to support them.  To reach our goal of $550,000 would be tremendous for our community partners especially during these tough times,” says Claire Mullen, Executive Director for the Salina Area United Way.  “By starting the COVID-19 Relief Fund, we stepped up as a leader for our community and we want to continue on that same path with our Annual Campaign.”
