Through the years, United Way has been known as War Chest, Community Chest, Red Feather, United Fund and United Way. Though the names have changed, the volunteer commitment to this organization and the basic premise of United Way, to fund programs and services for people in need through an annual fund-raising campaign, remains constant. With roots tracing back to 1884, the United Way of Greater Lima is one of 1,400 local – and independent – United Ways across America striving to meet the needs of its community. All United Ways are linked together by name and purpose, but each is run by its own local volunteers who set policy and raise and allocate campaign funds in their respective communities.
