United Way Posted by: United Way 2 years ago

United Way hosted Dr. Dana Winters of the Fred Rogers Institute as part of the 2022 Women Who Care event on November 9, 2022. The event was held at The Vic in Downtown Warsaw.

Dr. Winters is the Executive Director of the Fred Rogers Institute, an organization charged with spreading Mr. Rogers’ legacy of kindness.

More than forty women gathered in Warsaw to hear her message as a part of United Way’s ongoing effort to involve more women philanthropists in the work of improving the lives of children.

“Mr. Rogers’ message was clear: listen to children, learn about children, and love children. He had compassion and empathy for all children, no matter their background or circumstances.”
– Dr. Dana Winters, Fred Rogers Institute

She challenged the group to overcome the challenges of the last few years by listening more deeply to the children in our community, listening with “the ears of our heart” as the Benedictine monks say.

United Way’s Women Who Care events focus on bringing innovative ideas to our community for ways to strengthen families and improve the lives of children.  

“Our Women United leaders strive to bring the best possible ideas to our community. They believe our children deserve our best efforts. They are committed to this very important work.”
– Darren Bickel, United Way President

United Way’s Women United efforts include fundraising events, volunteering opportunities, and invitations to interact with our community’s brightest minds.
