The theme for the 2018 fundraising campaign is, “Every Day, The United Way.” As it has for more than 60 years, United Way of Rowan County works diligently, day in and day out, to serve those in need. From the 24-hour 211 resource hotline to our emergency services agencies, we strive to meet immediate needs for those in crisis as well as develop long-term solutions to improve the lives of our citizens.

John Struzick, Manufacturing Financial Manager at Innospec Performance Chemicals, will serve as chairman of the 2018 Rowan County United Way campaign, overseeing the annual fundraising effort on behalf of the local human service agencies supported by the United Way.
