The 2023 Campaign is off to a fabulous start! Our Campaign Professionals, Campaign Cabinet, and many organizations are hard at work raising the funds necessary to keep our Critical Need Programs available to our community. On August 25th we held a great Kickoff Celebration and Agency Fair with over 150 people in attendance at the Family Y. Aiken Regional Medical Centers provided a great lunch for us and East Aiken School of the Arts put on a great Toy Story themed performance complete with all the characters for us! The program was led by 2023 Board Chair Josh Booth and 2023 Campaign Chair Cody Anderson, who both did a great job of introducing our campaign leadership and reminding us that the funds raised through the campaign are vital to our partner agencies' ability to continue to provide critical services to our community. Speaking of our partner agencies, we had a great turn out for the agency fair held before the program began. Our partners did a great job setting up creative and informative booths for kickoff attendees to walk through and learn more about the services provided to our community on a daily basis through the campaign they are helping with.

These agencies offer 45 critical need programs to Aiken County, including programs that provide educational assistance, assistance with income stability, help to meet medical needs, and providing assistance in crisis. When non-profit organizations work together, not only can more good be accomplished, but also the cost of fundraising is dramatically reduced, leaving more money for what is important—helping people.
