County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo, joined by United Way President and CEO Jaime Saunders, recently kicked off the 2018 United Way of Greater Rochester Campaign for Monroe County employees.
“Our annual commitment to the United Way Campaign is a true testament to the spirit of giving that exists among Monroe County’s dedicated employees,” said Dinolfo. “This year, Monroe County set an aggressive giving goal of $275,000 so we can do our part to support improved outcomes and brighter futures for families across our community.”
Monroe County has set a goal of $275,000 for 2018. Each year, the United Way of Greater Rochester invests $2.1 million to help local babies, $4 million each year to help local youth and $2.4 million to help local elders and caregivers.
“Our support of the United Way is important to the well-being of our community,” said Dinolfo. “I have the utmost faith in our employees’ generosity, and I firmly believe that Monroe County and the United Way of Greater Rochester will meet this year’s worthy campaign goals.”
Each year, Monroe County actively campaigns to raise money for the United Way of Greater Rochester and its member charities. Nearly half of the county workforce participated in the United Way Campaign in 2017.
