United Way pumping $3.2M into local communities
United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley has approved investments of $3.2 million into local communities.
A statement from the agency said it is the largest sum it has ever invested in the region.
More than $1.1 million will go to 36 non-profit agencies for programs that fall under emergency services and early childhood education. Each will receive between $6,790 and $84,752.
Organizations receiving the money include Alta Behavioral Healthcare, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club of Youngstown, Catholic Charities, the YMCA and the YWCA of Youngstown, among others.
The funding will allow the United Way’s “Success After 6” initiative to expand from eight schools to 12.
