United Way of Greater Cincinnati – Eastern Area, has raised $1,293,280, according to Marvin A. Blade, assistant dean, UC Clermont, and chair of the campaign that covers Brown and Clermont counties.

“We want to thank everyone in the community – individuals, companies, schools, government offices – everyone who contributed,” Blade said. “Our economic situation continues to have a major impact on the number of people seeking help.”

Blade says that the agency is seeing many new clients.

"Many of those seeking help are doing so for the first time. Calls to United Way 211, the community's 24/7 connection to needed services, are at an all-time high," he said. "With the community's support, United Way will be able to continue helping ensure children are prepared for kindergarten, youth achieve success in school and life, families are financially stable, and people are healthy and independent."
