Realizing that human service programs outside the Hannibal city limits were struggling to make ends meet, the United Way rewrote by-laws and became the United Way of the Mark Twain Area. With a concentrated effort to expand the campaign to all areas in which funded programs are seated, the United Way now covers the five counties of Marion, Ralls, Monroe, Lewis and Shelby. We currently help fund over 30 programs for youth, seniors, people with disabilities, emergencies and health & education.In addition to the annual drive, which is well supported by business, industry and individuals, the United Way initiates and collaborates to build capacity within the communities of Northeast Missouri. In the past, our efforts like the Unmet Needs committees have brought needed recovery assistance following floods, tornadoes and natural disasters. With the deployment of the local National Guard troop in 2003, the United Way stepped forward offering services to families left behind and began a program sending hometown newspapers to all overseas military personnel from Northeast Missouri. This program will continue until the last service man and woman return home.As you can see, the United Way of the Mark Twain Area is much more that an annual fund raising event. We are a viable and credible organization actively working in each community in Northeast Missouri to make this the very best place to live and rear a family.

Ryan Rapp, Vice President Commerce Bank, presents Frank Di Tillo, Director of the United Way of the Mark Twain Area with a $1,800.00 check. The check represents the Commerce Bank corporate support for the 2015 United Way Campaign. Pending is another donation in support of the campaign that will come directly from the employees and officers of the local Commerce Bank. The bank supports the United Way in its various markets and encourages employees to do the same by allowing contributions by way of payroll deductions. Commerce managers at all levels are encouraged to take active roles in civic initiatives and to serve on boards in their communities. Frank Di Tillo shares: On Behalf of the United Way of the Mark Twain Area and the 41 agencies served in Northeast Missouri, Thank You to Commerce Bank for you financial support and for your leadership as Commerce Bank employees hold positions on the United Way Board, serve on the Allocation Committee and have stepped up to lead as Campaign Chairmen.
U.S. Bank continues its long standing support of the United Way of the Mark Twain Area. The donation will be used in Northeast Missouri as the United Way continues its 79 year history of work towards increasing the capacity for people to care for one another. The overall goal of the United Way of the Mark Twain Area this year is $565,000.00. U.S. Bank Foundation sponsoring nonprofit programs is an integral part of the company’s philanthropic initiatives. Supporting community based organizations, social services, arts and cultural events of all sizes in order to highlight the diverse range of needs and interests found throughout the communities is an integral part of U.S. Bank’s charitable giving. In 2014 U.S. Bank contributed more than $21 million in corporate contribution and nonprofit sponsorships.
