Public urged to unite for United Way

I am writing this letter in support of the 2008 United Way Campaign. This is my second year serving on the Campaign team, which truly is a team effort. The United Way, as you may know, serves the counties of Clinton and Essex. We are so fortunate to have this non-profit organization in our community. I cannot imagine what our lives would be like if they weren't here. The United Way family of agencies provides specialized services for children, families, the elderly, those requiring health services or rehabilitation, youth under increasing pressures, and even for the basic needs of food, clothing and shelter. Other services provided include: facilitating networking for health and human services organizations, providing forums on critical community issues, providing meeting space for community groups and organizations, and promoting healthy development of children and families. I urge you to consider donating to this year's campaign. Everyone's donation helps to meet this year's goal of $700,000. It can be made easily with one of these modes of payment: cash, check, credit card or payroll deduction. You can also donate via the website at www.unitedway.org. With your contribution, no matter how small, we can count on the services being there which we may sometimes take for granted. One never knows when they may need the support of one of the 33 agencies that the United Way supports. Thank you in advance for participating in this year's campaign. Lisa VanNatten
