Impact and Programs
Last year, more than 43,000 neighbors were positively impacted by United Way of Olmsted County. This includes approximately 4,500 callers who connected with local resources through the 211 information and referral service, 4,200 Rochester students who attended a Full-Service Community School, 5,000 Olmsted County children who received free books each month through Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, and dozens of local residents who saved a total of $50,000 on prescription costs through our SingleCare program. Thousands more accessed essential services thanks in part to more than $1 million in grants to local nonprofit programs that support the health, education, and financial stability of people in our community.
We continue to fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in our communities. This year, we anticipate that 3,000 students will getting a running start to school with a free backpack and school supplies; 500 people will get connected to volunteer opportunities with local nonprofits; 3,000 taxpayers will access the free VITA tax preparation services; and tens of thousands of neighbors will access critical basic services thanks to more than $1M of financial support to 30 local nonprofit programs.
