Marc Levy President and CEO

United Way of the Greater Dayton Area

Dear Mr. Levy,

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati supports the United Way, and I am pleased to assist you with the University of Dayton 2007 United Way Campaign.

We are very grateful to the United Way for all of the financial resources it has provided to the Archdiocese. Specifically, you have allocated program funding for Catholic Social Services' outreach in emergency food assistance, general mental health, Miami Valley Care Center, pregnancy counseling, respite care for elderly, supporting attachments in families, and teen parent link.

In 2007, the community was gracious enough to give Catholic organizations nearly one million dollars, including funding to the Dakota Center, Mercy Manor, and Saint Vincent Hotel.

Similarly, we are very grateful to the many students, faculty and staff volunteers from the University of Dayton who have given their time, talent and treasure of the past several years in service to people we touch through our agencies. We consider the United Way and the University of Dayton to be two valued partners in service to the Dayton community.

Thank you again for facilitating significant funding for our Catholic human services priorities throughout the greater Dayton area. I wish you well in the United Way campaign with faculty and staff at the University of Dayton.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Daniel E. Pilarczyk

Archbishop of Cincinnati
