Why this event is important:
“This event will celebrate the 2020 campaign achievements, and more importantly, what those achievements allow us to do: invest in 80+ crucial community programs and initiatives to change lives. Our work is more important than ever during these challenging times. We know too many individuals and families face significant struggles, and the pandemic has created even greater issues. The work we do must continue, and the way Berks Countians band together and care for each other must continue. By working together, our agency and community partners, along with our donors and volunteers, share a commitment to help those in need and build a stronger community for all of us. This event provides us with the opportunity to share gratitude with Berks County,” says Tammy White, President of United Way of Berks County.
