It’s hard to convey in a short letter how much your donations and efforts mean to the thousands of people who receive assistance through 100 Neediest Cases. Because of you, 100 Neediest Cases is able to help people during a time that is often stressful and difficult.
Our mailbox fills with hundreds of letters each year thanking United Way, 100 Neediest Cases and you for your generosity:
“Your gift was received with great appreciation. . . . It brought more joy to my holiday and helped to remind me and hopefully others of the gift of giving. Thank you and United Way so much and continue to keep up the good work. Wishing all of you a happy and prosperous New Year.”
Thanks to your support of 100 Neediest Cases this past year, 935 cases were adopted and more than $1.4 million was raised to help people in our community. With the efforts of our volunteers, every single penny you donated went to people who needed extra help during the holiday season.
