This year, United Way of Addison County is celebrating its 46 years as a leader in the community.
In 1968, the Cornwall United Fund became the United Fund of Addison County. And in 1969, the United Fund received nonprofit status. It wasn’t until 1974 that the name was changed to United Way of Addison County.
Since the beginning, United Way has been an organization driven by commited volunteers. It is through their efforts that UWAC is able to fund non-profit health and human service agencies and programs that enrich the lives of those who live and work in Addison County.
“The United Way is woven into the fabric of life in Addison County. The people who have taken leadership roles in the UWAC over the years have demonstrated keen awareness and foresight in adapting to changing social service needs as our community has grown. The organization has surely earned the wide support it enjoys.” Ann Ross, Co-Founder
