“Did you know that of the approximately 212,600 people living in Niagara County, more than half have been touched in the last year by United Way-funded programming?” a United Way newsletter says. “Over 120,000 of our friends and neighbors, including 22,000 youth, received support from a United Way agency in the last year. This includes over 87,000 people assisted with basic needs like rent assistance or disaster recovery, over 32,000 treatments for alcohol or substance abuse, over 14,000 seniors living healthier and more active lives, and over 3,000 youth learning in scouting, before and after-school programs, and early childhood development programs.”
