I hope you’ve been following our articles this week and that you have a better understanding of who the United Fund is, what we do and why we exist. What you may not realize is that we have been a part of this community since 1877 and hope to remain part of this community for the next 142 years! All of us here at the United Fund; our staff, our board and our volunteers love the communities we serve. We are passionate about them, because this is where we call home.

Personally, I’ve lived around here for most of my life. I grew up here This is home, this is family. We know family comes in all shapes and sizes, sometimes we like them and sometimes we don’t. No matter what, you don’t give up on family, you don’t lose faith in them, and you stick together. That is truly what you can find here.

We are very fortunate in this community. Yes, it’s true we have our share of troubles, what family doesn’t? But we have an incredibly loving and generous community, willing to step up and help out whenever needed. We have a great system for supporting folks in crisis and other great systems ready to help you plan and to walk with you toward success. We live in a place where you can still count on the kindness of others.

All of this is true because of you. The United Fund is not just one or two people doing all the work. The United Fund is the entire community working together, raising funds, supporting programs and planning our future together. The United Fund is the community, caring about me and you and everyone around us enough to make sure we all have the opportunity to prosper together.

If you haven’t joined us already, we invite you to be part of helping us move our community forward. Your input is welcome and our doors are open. We would love to hear from you. We also invite you to join us in celebrating all the best of our community by participating in our annual campaign! All the dollars raised here, stay here to support programs that help our community be the place we all want to live and call home. Your donation does make a difference.
