Letter from United Way

Dear Faculty and Staff of Walla Walla University:

We recognize that 2020 has not been a typical year. Historic flooding in February 2020 followed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic exposed critical shortcomings in the Health, Education and Financial Stability of our friends, family, and co-workers. It’s been a year of intense struggle. As fall transitions to winter, that struggle is far from over for many in our community. Many hardworking families are one unexpected situation away from financial crisis. They may be forced to make tough choices such as deciding between quality childcare, buying groceries, heating their home, or paying rent. Over 500 individuals and families are STILL impacted by the floods, and United Way is working hard to help ease the struggle. This year, United Way of the Blue Mountains will focus on supporting projects, programs and partners through our Educational Attainment Alliance impact initiative, the Blue Mountain Region Long-Term Recovery Group, and Partner Support.

Thank you for your generosity and consideration.

Monica Boyle
Director of Development and Finance, United Way of the Blue Mountains
