Things are going great here at United Way, and I am really enjoying myself and the work I am doing. My favorite part about my role at United Way is working with the community here. Over the past couple of days I have had the opportunity to communicate with and meet a lot of wonderful people. Everyone has been so kind and welcoming to me. I really appreciate the warmth I have received from this wonderful community. I have not only experienced the kindness, but working with United Way I get to see the generosity of the community as well. A true community of giving!
Over the last two months I spent some time meeting with many organizations about their United Way campaigns. It was wonderful to see how excited these workplaces are to get their campaigns rolling and start giving. It was so inspiring to see how excited individuals got about giving back to their community. I have never seen a community like ours that is so dedicated to making sure their neighbor is taken care of. However, it is not only the workplace campaigns, but also the individuals who donate and support us that are making a difference. Individual giving not only includes financial giving; they also give of their time by volunteering for events like our Chili Cook-off. It is great to see a community that is so involved. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to get to work with all of you throughout our campaign season. Please let me know if I can help in any way.
As campaign packets and generous donations start to come in, I get excited about what our United Way will be able to do this year! I know that these funds will go to support hundreds of thousands of our community members, and it all comes from your kindness and generosity. We would not be able to do what we do without this wonderful giving community. I am grateful I get to continue to work with you all and look forward to see what is to come!
