Orrville Area United Way officially launched its 2024 Campaign on August 16, emphasizing their continued dedication to partner with local non-profits, donors, and volunteers to identify and effectively and responsibly address the community’s most pressing needs. Building on their “CommUNITY” theme, OAUW is committed to strengthening partnerships and supporting vital programs that create positive and lasting impact in the community.

Orrville Area United Way has been a steadfast supporter of Eastern Wayne County for over 65 years, contributing over $17.5 million to the region. In 2022 alone, more than 10,000 individuals in Dalton, Marshallville, and Orrville benefited from OAUW community investments. Orrville Area United Way focuses funding in the impact areas of Nurturing Children and Youth, Helping in Hard Times, Promoting Health and Wellness, and Developing Life Skills. Additionally, Orrville Area United Way invests in seven Percy Programs, direct service programs that fill gaps not met by another provider. A gift to Orrville Area United Way is a gift that benefits the entire CommUNITY, not just one program, issue, or population.

For the 2024 campaign, a goal has been set to raise $675,000 through contributions from workplace campaigns, individuals, and corporations.

The campaign runs until November 1, 2023. For more information or to donate, go to www.orrvilleareaunitedway.org or visit the OAUW office at 135 N. Main Street, Orrville.
