Positive Community Impact
We operate the 211 helpline for eleven counties in the region including those affected by the storm. The 211 helpline is open 24 hours a day and has been taking calls nonstop from storm victims in need of services, with needs ranging from food and rent assistance to diapers.
Our local efforts are reflective of our 105 year roots in the community. “Our organization was created in response to the 1913 flood, one of the costliest disasters to affect our area. We know from firsthand experience that this recovery will take not take days or months, it will take years and we want the community to know when all the volunteers leave, and the media attention has moved on, United Way will still be here to do the hard work this recovery requires long into the future.” President & CEO Tom Maultsby.
If you would like to volunteer your time to the recovery efforts please contact United Way’s Volunteer Connection at 937.225.3039. If you are in need of assistance call United Way’s helpline by simply dialing 211 or 937.225.3000.
