“There is no better way to financially support our community than with the United Way,” said Todd Leeth, attorney and partner with Hoeppner, Wagner & Evans LLP and United Way 2019-2020 Campaign Cabinet Chair. “The vast network they support helps to support our whole community. I believe in what United Way is doing and they find the best opportunities for my giving to make a difference."

United Way’s fall fundraising campaign provides companies and their employees an easy to meet their social responsibilities goals and give back to their community through a paycheck deduction process.
