LETTER: Helping United Way helps all of us

-A A +A

As co-chair of the 2013 United Way of Perry County annual drive, I am very proud of our community and the willingness to make things happen. I feel people care and strive in helping make our county a better place to live.

It is an honor and privilege to be co-chair on this special, commemorative anniversary of 40 years (strong) with United Way!

This year at the last minute, Chad James and I decided to include the “40 for the 40th” challenge in the campaign drive. We increased our yearly goal from $125,000 to$130,000. I’m certain this goal can be achieved with your help.  On behalf of the funded agencies, would you please consider making a donation?

As a community-minded individual or a business in Perry County, we hope that you will see this donation as an opportunity to support many programs and make a great impact.

More than 98 cents of every dollar donated is used locally for our children, neighbors, elderly and the community’s needs. And remember, your donation can be tax-deductible.

Together, we’re building a better community for all of us … and that’s what really matters!

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Co-chair, United Way of Perry County 2013 Campaign
