First Merchants Bank of Muncie has a rich history in supporting United Way of Delaware County’s campaign efforts. For several decades, associates from the bank have held leadership roles as volunteers and Loaned Executives for UWDC. The company has regularly participated in corporate giving and has contributed six Campaign Chairs to United Way’s fundraising efforts through the years.
Today, nearly half of Delaware County households live in poverty or are just one crisis away from it. It is a vicious generational cycle, but families in our community are working hard to break free from it. These families face obstacles in reaching their health, education, and financial goals. They need access to additional resources, and United Way of Delaware County is fortunate to have dedicated local leaders who want to make this happen.
