The United Way movement started over 128 years ago in Colorado when interested citizens developed a central, volunteer-driven organization and process to evaluate their community’s growing Charitable needs. A trophy in our possession notes a date of 1928 celebrating the conduct of a Martinsburg Community Fund Campaign. Pictures and minute books note the later founding of our other county United Ways. These items are a testament to the long history of the United Way in the Eastern Panhandle. In one form or another, United Way has been making a difference in the lives of Eastern Panhandle citizens for over eighty years.
