“For more than 12 years the United Way of the Greater Dayton Area has offered the Greene County Christmas for Kids program, helping 5,000 children to have a joyous Christmas morning with presents under the tree,” Nicole Switzer, Director of Greene County for the United Way of the Greater Dayton Area. “Our hope is that additional companies will be inspired to step up and start contributing in major ways to their community’s United Way, and to the school district.”
