“Adams County is a special place, and the overwhelming support we’ve received from the community
these past few years shows that,” Wingerter said in a press release. “Despite the challenges we all face, the needs of our community and our valued partner agencies remain. We hope Quincy and Adams County joins us in helping to provide the funding needed for the children and families we serve.”
The United Way of Adams County Board of Directors set a goal of $1.175 million for 2022. Officials urge
the community to give more than they have previously, or for the first time altogether, ensuring critical
services and programs United Way invests in continue uninterrupted for those that need it the most.
“A successful United Way campaign means people in Adams County have access to the services and
resources they need,” Brooke Stokes said. “This year is critical in so many ways. We’re hoping to keep our promise to those we serve by meeting and exceeding our goal. With everyone’s help, we know we can have another successful year and support those vital programs we invest in every year.”
