The United Way of the Capital Region’s COVID-19 Basic Needs Fund was launched the end of March to support United Way partners that provide food, clothing and shelter services in Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties.
Millers Mutual’s Charitable Giving Committee exists as a dedicated community and industry partner, concentrating resources to have an impact on community development and safety. We take pride in giving back to the communities we serve. In light of all that is occurring in our community due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our employees were eager to support the local chapter of The United Way with a $5,000 donation.
“As an insurance provider, we are here for people when they need us the most,” said Katie Gouldner, PR & Marketing Communications Specialist. “Donating to the United Way’s COVID-19 Basic Needs Fund aligns with our mission to support members of our community.”
Millers Mutual supported the annual United Way fundraising campaign with over 94 percent employee participation in 2019. In addition, we are active participants in the popular Day of Caring program, serve on various committees, participate in the annual Trike Race, and support the annual Poinsettias sale.
As of April 14, 2020, the UWCR raised $142,492 from individual and corporate supporters for the COVID-19 Basic Needs Fund.
