Kevin Schreiber, C. Kim Bracey to lead 100th United Way of York County Campaign
United Way of York County is pleased to announce that Kevin Schreiber, CEO of York County Economic Alliance; and C. Kim Bracey, 24th Mayor of the City of York, PA; will serve as Campaign Co-Chairs for the centennial United Way of York County Campaign, one of the most significant fundraising events for York County.
In their roles, Schreiber and Bracey will lead the Campaign Cabinet, a group of dedicated community leaders that devote their time and energy to building relationships with local companies and encouraging them to lead the way and give back through a United Way campaign. Last year, with the community’s support, United Way of York County raised $5.5 million through the Campaign and an additional $1.1 million in partnership with York County Community Foundation through the York County COVID-19 Response Fund.
United Way of York County, celebrating 100 years of community impact in 2021, is pleased to announce a Campaign goal this year of $6 million.
United Way of York County’s Campaign is the largest annual fundraising event in York County, with nearly 60,000 people in York County directly benefitting from United Way funded programs. Each year, hundreds of companies and organizations across York County pull together to give back and raise the critical resources needed to build a stronger, caring community.
“As York County continues to weather the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen challenges to our economy, educational system, and beyond,” said Anne Druck, President, United Way of York County. “We’ll need everyone to pull together and give generously to deliver great results for our community, and Kevin and Kim’s leadership and energy will help us to build and maintain vital relationships with our companies and build the framework for a successful Campaign.”

About United Way of York County
For 100 years, United Way of York County has worked in the York County community to improve people’s lives. It began as The York Welfare Federation, an organization that raised funds on behalf of 17 member agencies. Today, as United Way of York County, the mission of raising community funds remains the same, but the strategies have broadened in order to meet the growing and changing needs of people living in York County.
United Way has adapted over the years and now collaborates with other public and private organizations to engage the community in addressing the complex issues facing York County. By developing initiatives that get at the root causes of these issues, United Way and its partners find solutions and fund programs that improve the lives of one in four people in York County. Through gifts to the Impact Fund, United Way is able to invest those dollars into 66 programs supported by 35 Partner Agencies. These programs address human services needs across three Focus Areas: Education, Health, and Financial Stability. This enables United Way to tackle the immediate and continuing needs of York County families and individuals and to create real, lasting change that matters to you and our community.
