Moira's Message: Make Wishes Come True

For 35 years we've partnered with the Cincinnati Enquirer on the Wish List, a seasonal program dedicated to providing help to local families.

CINCINNATI, Ohio (November 23, 2021)

Dear United Way friends,

Our annual Wish List partnership with The Cincinnati Enquirer always touches my heart in new ways. This is our 35th year partnering with the Enquirer to help local families in need.

This year’s list of eight families includes:

  • An 11-year-old living with health conditions resulting from a brain injury at birth.
  • A widowed grandmother raising three young girls on her own
  • A 3-year-old living with cerebral palsy and epilepsy

We work with local partners, nonprofits, grassroots groups, faith groups and others to identify the families and then ask, “How specifically can we help?”

I hope you will check out our Wish List stories in the Enquirer. This is our annual reminder that United is the way to help our neighbors.

You can find the collection of current and past Wish List stories and make a gift by visiting our dedicated page at uwgc.org/wishlist.
