United Way of Central Indiana unveils 100 Heroes

As part of its centennial celebration, United Way asked the community to nominate any person who raised a hand to help others and made a positive impact in the community

One hundred heroes from all walks of life have been unveiled as part United Way of Central Indiana’s 100th anniversary celebration. These 100 individuals, nominated by their peers, family members, co-workers, and friends and chosen by a nine-member volunteer committee, have used their skills, passions and talents to make the community a better place. These heroes represent our diverse region, come from all walks of life, and many of them will have their story told for the first time.

“We think there’s no better way to celebrate our 100th birthday milestone than to shine the light on individuals who, in the opinions of others, go above and beyond to make a positive impact in our community,” said Allison Melangton, co-chair of the UWCI@100 committee. “We applaud our volunteer jury for completing the almost impossible task of choosing 100 from hundreds of submissions, as all of them are all worthy of the title, ‘hero.’”
