Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of students,
teachers, and administrators in Decatur County, the local schools were able to raise $2,108.45
during the 2022 Change Challenge.
On Wednesday, September 28, nine schools participated in the challenge collecting pennies,
nickels, dimes, quarters, and cash to help support 16 agencies providing 21 programs in
Decatur County. Joane Cunningham, Executive Director shared, “Hopefully, if we incorporate
giving at a younger age, it will develop into a lifelong habit. When we affect people at a young
age it has a positive effect on their life, the community they live in and inspires life changing
The following schools participated in the Challenge: North Decatur Elementary and High
School, South Decatur Elementary and High School, Greensburg – Elementary, Jr. High, and
High School, St. Mary’s School, and Good Shepherd Christian Academy.
United Fund funded partners include: Advocates for Children, American Red Cross, Carousel
Play and Learn Center, Catch A Ride, Champions of Youth, Children’s Advocacy Center of
Southeastern Indiana, Community Healthcare Clinic, Decatur County Family YMCA, Decatur
County Youth Baseball, Girl Scouts, Greensburg Community Bread of Life, Head Start/Human
Services, Our Hospice, Speranza House, and Turning Point.
Cunningham added, “This is truly a community effort, no one person or organization can do this
alone. We are so grateful for all who were able and willing to donate their spare change for the
2022 Decatur County United Fund Change Challenge.”
