The United Way of Ventura County held an open house and ribbon cutting on June 19 to officially dedicate its new headquarters at 702 County Square Drive, Suite 100, in Ventura. The agency relocated in December from Camarillo.
“We’re very excited about our new headquarters, which is in shared space with one of our community partners, Cabrillo Economic Development Corp. And with this move, we are saving nearly $100,000 per year, money that will be used to support various community needs,” said Eric Harrison, president and CEO of the United Way of Ventura County.
Additionally, the agency will be kicking off its annual workplace employee campaign for 2018-19. Funds raised are used to sustain programs in three areas of focus: education, income and health. Top employers running campaigns this year include Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Procter and Gamble, Enterprise, the Ventura County government, UPS, Costco, Target, Our Promise (state employees), AT&T and Macy’s.
