United Way Campaign

Message from Jeff Stewart & Cindy Green, Co-chairs, 2018 United Way Campaign

It is our pleasure to serve as this year’s campaign co-chairs, and this year, the campaign will run from Oct. 4 to Oct. 26.

Each day, the work you do as a county employee helps shape the lives of the members of this community. We’re asking you to show your love for the Kansas City region by investing in the United Way.

One donation — your donation — benefits our entire community. And it benefits people throughout their lives, at the times when they need help the most. Here is just some of what United Way of Greater Kansas City United Way made possible in 2017:

  • More than 26,000 children and young adults received treatment and support for trauma and abuse.
  • More than 227,500 households received food assistance.
  • Nearly 143,000 people received health services.
  • More than 14,000 children and youth participated in programming related to post-secondary and career success.
  • Nearly 6,100 individuals made progress toward financial stability goals like paying down existing debt or changing spending habits. 

We invite you to make a donation to the United Way of Greater Kansas City as an employee of Johnson County Government and a member of this community.
