One hundred heroes from all walks of life were unveiled on January 9, 2018 as part of United Way of Central Indiana’s 100th anniversary celebration in 2018. These 100 individuals were nominated by their peers, family members, co-workers, and friends and chosen by a nine-member volunteer committee and have used their skills, passions and talents to make the community a better place.
Melissa Burgess, the Horizon House street outreach coordinator, was among the 100 individuals nominated and selected for this honor. Beginning Jan. 10, each hero’s story will be published on the UWCI website – one story each day – through Friday, April 20. Horizon House will celebrate Melissa’s story, when posted, by sharing on our social media platforms.
