Campaign Kickoff Breakfast

We celebrate each new Campaign with a Kickoff Breakfast & Award Presentations. Our Campaign turns over every September, with the breakfast taking place in the middle of the month. The morning of the breakfast includes announcing the Campaign Goal, giving an updated report, and presenting our annual awards. Attending our Kickoff Breakfast is a great way to learn more about the United Fund and the Impact we’re having on our community. If you’re interested in attending, please call our office at 419-668-0269 and we’ll add you to the invitation list.
