CHAD Celebrates 30-Year Partnership with United Way of the Midlands
The partnership between CHAD (Combined Health Agencies Drive; www.chadnebraska.org) of Nebraska and United Way of the Midlands began in 1987. Poor health is a major cause of poverty in Nebraska and across the United States. The partnership campaign helps raise funds that help prevent, cure, and improve outcomes for disease to reduce this major cause of poverty.
“Health is the one cause that affects absolutely everyone in the world regardless of their demographic. We are the only drive in the state that focuses solely on health that affects us all,” said Michelle Grossman, president and CEO of CHAD. “But we also know that those affected by health need support from United Way’s funded partners, too. That’s why this partnership has been so successful over the past 32 years.”
Through workplace giving, the organizations are able to support those in need and provide valuable support.
“The partnership truly provides one unified voice and asks for the largest health and human services campaign to make the community a better place,” said Grossman.
Since its inception, CHAD has raised $58,159,054 for charities who are supporting those in need in the community. To learn more, call (402) 614-8500 or visit www.chadnebraska.org. You can also connect with the organization on social media (@CHADNebraska).
