UWYC celebrates 75 years of service

The United Way of York County, SC, held our Annual Campaign Kick-off on September 12th at the Hood Center, sponsored by Duke Energy and Publix. The luncheon celebrated 75 years of serving our local community.  Scott Wells, Board of Directors, delivered our 75th Anniversary Reflections speech.  He stated, "Remembering our past helps build our future."  In 1942, the United Way of Rock Hill was founded and raised $24,800 in support of four agencies.  Two of those agencies, the Salvation Army and he YMCA remain our partners today.

Scott Wells introduced Wes Hayes who is serving as our Campaign Chairman for the 2017-2018 Campaign.  It was noted that Wes served in this same role during our 50th Anniversary.  Wes encouraged everyone in attendance to be part of providing solutions for positive change in our community by giving to the United Way.  Read more.
