In Honor of “Back to the Future Day” United Way of Franklin County would like to remember how far United Way has come over the years!
United Way was first Established 125 years ago, when Frances Wisebart Jacobs had a vision to start what would become the first United Way. Her group of church and community leaders coordinated services and fundraising for 22 agencies in Denver, Colorado during their first year!
In the picture below is an United Way Campaign Kick Off Event from October 1985! Did you know that United Way of Franklin County just had its 2016 Campaign Kickoff at the beginning of October? In the picture, each United Way member is holding a pumpkin with the amount of money they were hoping to raise for that year.
Today, United Way of Franklin County has 17 Member Agencies
with Campaign goal of $170,000 for the 2016 year!
….Now THAT is something the Doc and Marty would be proud of if they came to the “future” today!
