80 YEARS UNITED

POCONO MOUNTAINS UNITED WAY TURNS 80!

For 80 years, Pocono Mountains United Way has mobilized resources to invest in communities where resources are needed most. In 1942, the Monroe County Community Chest was established and began its earliest fundraising efforts to support local agencies and war relief charities. Today, Pocono Mountains United Way fights for the Education, Health and Financial Stability of every person in our community.

There are many ways to make a difference! Here are a few (80 to be exact!) ways you can help celebrate our 80th Birthday and make an impact this year.
