2017, continued from our January 2017 newsletter...
What if everyone had a New Year's Resolution to help someone else succeed?
In many ways, United Way shares these same goals. We envision a world where every individual has an opportunity to succeed, and entire communities thrive as a result. To realize that vision, we focus our resources -- including volunteers on health, education, and financial stability. These are the building blocks for a quality life.
These are big goals, but with each person doing their part, we really can change the world. For you and me, it could be as simple as giving our children the tools they need to be successful in school. Or, helping people prepare income tax returns so that struggling families receive the benefits they are due.
I've met so many talented people in this community. They are all Everyday Heroes. How powerful would it be if we all worked together, united, to help someone else succeed? Make a resolution this year to get engaged with us. Check out our Community Engagement Calendar for events and opportunities in 2017. You might find your own happiness and well-being starts with helping others.
Give. Advocate. Volunteer.
