with kristi <jon talks <jon talks with kristi howe, united way of the wabash valley board member. the united way is extending the annual resource drive until march 20 and challenging the community to help close the gap on donations with the "stronger united challenge." the organization will be rallying on march 14, international pie day, to celebrate the community and thank supporters for their participation in the "stronger united challenge." donations of $100 or more made between today and march 14 will earn a thank-you pie that will be delivered on pie day. the pies are being sponsored by central state construction to allow for all funds raised in the challenge to be invested into the community. kristin craig, united way board member stated, "the stronger united challenge will be a unique, fun way for the community to connect with united way and its incredible mission. bringing people out of poverty is not something that can be done alone, and this challenge provides a way for anyone and everyone in the community to get engaged. and it just happens to include a sweet reward for your generosity pie!" after listening to community members, the united way launched a new bold goal last year to respond to community requests: to address poverty in the wabash valley by committing to move 10,000 struggling families into financial stability. this was in response to more than 10 years of declining donations to support local charitable organizations.
