CINCINNATI (October 6, 2022) — United Way of Greater Cincinnati is honored to have received the Community Outreach and Partnership Award from the Cincinnati NAACP during its annual Freedom Fund Dinner.
“We are honored to be recognized by the Cincinnati NAACP as we work together to find solutions to our community’s most pressing needs,” said Moira Weir, President and CEO of United Way of Greater Cincinnati. “We are grateful to our local NAACP for its support as we pursue our vision: A strong, vibrant community in which every individual and family can thrive.”
Each year, the Community Outreach and Partnership Award recognizes an organization or person that exemplifies the values of the NAACP in its outreach efforts in the Greater Cincinnati area. United Way of Greater Cincinnati was recognized for its community-centered, data-driven approach to addressing equitable economic mobility, financial empowerment, and expanded access to community resources for families in crisis.
Weir and team members of United Way of Greater Cincinnati accepted the award at the Oct. 1 event at the Duke Energy Convention Center.
The Annual Freedom Fund Dinner is a long-standing tradition that brings together NAACP members and community supporters to raise funds to support the operations of the Cincinnati Branch. Other awards presented at this year’s event included the 2022 President’s Award, the Wright Overstreet Memorial Award and the Distinguished Volunteer Award.
