Thank you, Joyce Weimer!

It is with great sadness that we let you know that our dear friend and colleague, Joyce Weimer, has passed away from cancer. She served on the Board of Allegany County United Way for many years. Because of her passion to help people, she initiated ACUW's VITA/EITC free tax preparation program. This program has grown every year and during this past tax season, 35 volunteers assisted 647 taxpayers with their returns resulting in $1,004,315 in refunds going back into our local economy.

Joyce was fully committed to whatever she did. Her presence here truly will be missed.

Here is a link to Joyce's full obituary.

The United Way brings together people and resources to help create an impact and build a safety net to help meet the needs of our friends, neighbors, co-workers and families.

A constant reminder that when we as individuals think outside ourselves, we have the power to facilitate change. When we think of others’ lives as linked to our own, our compassion grows. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all.

We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our communities. And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day.


Allegany County United Way is accepting resumes for the part-time position of Financial Coordinator/VITA tax preparation program coordinator.  Resumes should be emailed to and should be received before October 9. To see the position description, click here.
