The United Way of Columbia and Montour Counties held an open house for members of the community to stop by its new office building in downtown Bloomsburg on Thursday, Sept. 12, and to kick off the event, a ribbon cutting was held. 

Earlier this year, the United Way moved from its previous location at the Chamber office on Market St., to a new location a few blocks down Main St. next to Fog and Flame at 36 East Main St. The move was made necessary by the agency’s growth, as an increase in its scope of services led to an increase in staff. Two agencies that the United Way often collaborates with have also set up auxiliary offices at the same location: Central Susquehanna Opportunities, Inc. and The Gate House. This has enable better and move efficient collaboration between the organizations.
