Thanks to generous donors and a dedicated campaign committee, BWH raised $197,807 in support of those in need during the 2016 United Way campaign. During the campaign, which ran Nov. 1 though Dec. 9, donors were entered to win a host of raffle prizes, including a New England Patriots helmet signed by Julian Edelman, a mountain bike, a TV, gift cards to local restaurants and more. Every year, donations to the BWH United Way campaign help local families afford basic needs, such as food and heating oil, as well as programs for affordable housing, sustainable employment and youth opportunities.
