About Our Auction
Education is the foundation of individual and community success, and our children are the best investment for our future. Power of the Community is an event that raises money for the United Way of the Wabash Valley’s Success By 6 programs including Real Men Read in Clay County and more!
This program brings adult role models into local schools to encourage children’s literacy skills and promote the joy of reading. Each time the readers visit, all children receive a book to take home; resulting in 5 new books in their home library.

About United Way of the Wabash Valley
United Way of the Wabash Valley is working towards a bold goal of moving 10,000 families from financial struggles and into stability. But there is no “one size fits all” answer, and no one person or organization can do it alone. United Way is building a collective movement of people and organizations to tackle the complex issue of poverty and the dilemma of struggling working families within our community.
United Way of the Wabash Valley’s collective impact approach addresses people’s immediate needs but also works collaboratively with other partners in the community toward changing systems so that people can avoid challenges altogether.
To create change United Way is investing in the focus areas of Education, Health, Financial Stability, Community, and Safety Net Services.
