Dear Friends and Community Partners,

On behalf of the Pekin United Way, I would like to extend an invitation to join us for our annual fundraising campaign. This effort is necessary to support the more than 28 programs and services offered to area residents which seek to encourage and promote education, financial stability and independence, and lifelong health.

If you have given in the past, THANK YOU for your support and I hope that you will do so again this year.  I also encourage you to consider asking a family member, a co-worker, or friend to support the Pekin United Way.  Any and all support is much appreciated at this time when funding for some of the most critical programs benefiting our community members is being reduced or eliminated.

The generosity of the Pekin Community allowed the Pekin United Way to provide over $390,000 of support last year which positively impacted the lives of thousands in need in our community.

I thank you for your support, time, and contributions.  Should you have any questions about the Pekin United Way, our annual campaign, or the programs that we support, I encourage you to please contact us!
