Serving Monroe, Owen, and Greene Counties



Press Club Internship Benefits Students and Community

Each year, United Way partners with the Bloomington Press Club to place two IU Media School interns with a pair of United Way member agencies. In the span of ten years, through generous funding from Press Club dues and monies raised from events, 29 student experiences have been sponsored. Most recently, the Press Club placed Catherine Blankensop with Shalom Community Center and Emma Cesar with LifeDesigns.

Holiday Cheer at Member Agencies

United Way member agencies around Monroe, Owen, and Greene counties are setting out to make sure everyone has a great holiday season. One such agency is Area 10 Agency on Aging. Area 10 is coordinating with several churches and businesses to pull together gift bags for homebound older adults and residents in their affordable housing. They have been collecting handmade holiday cards from various volunteers to include along with a gift bag for each homebound individual whom they deliver groceries to through their Mobile Food Pantry.

Meet Julie Brockman, Campaign Cabinet Member

“We just have to ask ourselves ‘who do we want to help’ and get started!” says Julie Brockman, a relationship banker at Old National and a member of the 2018 United Way Campaign Cabinet.

Brockman is new to United Way, having gotten involved at the suggestion of her employer, but she has hit the ground running. She not only “spreads the word” to all her personal friends and coworkers, but also took the initiative to organize a food drive for the holiday season at local branches of Old National Bank.
