As a Midlands resident, you are no doubt aware of the issues facing our community: low graduation rates, persistent poverty and a lack of affordable health care. You may not be aware, however, of the efforts United Way of the Midlands and its 45,000 donors and volunteers are making to help students succeed, increase financial stability and provide access to health care.
The solutions to these problems are not simple, but when we Live United, we can tackle even the toughest problems in the Midlands and make this a place where people can realize their dreams, live healthy lives and prosper now and into the future. We all win when a child graduates from school, when families can afford to meet their basic needs and when we have the opportunity to lead healthy, productive lives.
How do we do it? By recruiting people like you from all across the community who have the passion, resources and commitment to get things done.
We have a long way to go, but there is a lot you can do:
You can give. You can make a personal contribution. Your financial support enables this important work to continue.
You can advocate. Help us spread the word about the good work United Way is doing in the community.
You can volunteer. We are always looking for board and council members. You can also help by volunteering to read to students, help prepare tax returns or find another project through United Way’s volunteer center.
We sincerely appreciate your support. Together, we are making lasting change in the lives of thousands across the Midlands.
