Why we are having this event? Yes, our goal is to raise dollars for our 2018 Campaign, but we also want to raise student awareness about the Schuylkill United Way and the good that our Partner Agencies are doing for our county. Our partner agencies served over 118,000 people last year in Schuylkill County and 99% of every dollar raised in Schuylkill County stays here to benefit our community.
