ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (Times Sentinel) - The United Way of Central Indiana is consolidating its operations and closing county offices throughout the region in order to “more effectively serve” Central Indiana.

The Lebanon office, housed in the Boone County Chamber of Commerce building at 221 N. Lebanon St., is scheduled to close Aug. 5, according to our partners at the Zionsville Times Sentinel. United Way has had an office in this area for more than 25 years.

Aaron Gore, the Lebanon office director, told the Times Sentinel the change will allow him to more effectively serve the area. He'll keep a home office and spend at least 75 percent of his work time in Boone County.

“We’re doing this because we believe that we can do a better job serving the people in all of the counties by having a more collaborative environment for our teams that are responsible for each county,” Greg Fennig, chief marketing, communications and community relations officer for United Way of Central Indiana, said. “What had happened in the past is that we’d inadvertently created our own silos within the organization.”

Gore said the consolidation should not change the level of service residents receive, except to improve it.
