United Way of Greater St. Louis is in the midst of its 2011 fundraising campaign. The Alzheimer’s Association St. Louis Chapter has been a United Way-funded agency for more than ten years. United Way membership is critical to the St. Louis Chapter, because it means we have a dependable and guaranteed source of revenue each year. Many of the services we deliver would be difficult to fund without the help of the United Way. Our allocation from the United Way is used for general operations and has supported care consultations, the family support fund and outreach programs.
“United Way helps our agency maintain a high level of service,” said Carroll Rodriguez, St. Louis Chapter, chief operating officer. “With their support we’re able to help even more people. We’re proud to be a United Way member agency.”
In addition to funding our organization, United Way funds nearly 200 other health and human service agencies throughout the 16-county region surrounding and including St. Louis. More than 1 million people (that’s one in every three) in our community receive help each year from these United Way funded agencies.
The St. Louis Chapter has held its own United Way workplace campaign for our employees and we support the efforts of the United Way. If you have questions about how you can designate the Alzheimer’s Association, St. Louis Chapter as the recipient of your United Way donations please call 800.272.3900.
