Youngstown United Way’s 2020 Campaign Raises $3.4M

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley raised $3,389,482 in its 2020 campaign.

The top workplace campaign was once again The Muransky Companies, followed by Compco Industries, Dearing Compressor and Pump Co., Fireline Inc. and Youngstown State University.

The top new workplace campaigns were West Side Tire and Service and the Eastgate Regional Council of Governments.

“When we started the 2020 campaign, we knew there would be unforeseen challenges. Looking back, it was a win-win for our community due to the philanthropic pledges of so many,” said Kevin Helmick, president and CEO of Farmers National Bank and chairman of United Way’s 2020 campaign. “This support will make a difference for many families and children in the Mahoning Valley.”

Over the course of 2020, the United Way shifted its focus to addressing community needs arising from the pandemic, including the launch of the COVID-19 Response Fund and the Satur-Day of Caring initiative, which provided food deliveries to those who were unable to leave their homes.

“United Way wanted to serve as the backbone during the pandemic, leading the way to support those in need.  Our donors at every level recognized that, and stepped up in incredible ways this past year,” said Bob Hannon, president of the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley.  “They not only donated funding to help us get the work done, they donated their time. We saw our volunteer base increase significantly.”
