United Way Striving to Reach Its Fundraising Goal
As a local entrepreneur and publisher, I strive to make sure I keep my community in the forefront of my thoughts. This past year, while serving as the United Way Campaign Chairman, I have seen what real community service looks like. The organizations supported by United Way do amazing things in our community. Together WE can make a difference. But WE need to work together.
WE need you….as United Way of Danville-Pittsylvania County is just 11% short of reaching our goal of $700,000. With the holidays behind us, our hope is that you are now in a better position to support our 2013-14 campaign.
WE still need you….as our partner agencies are depending on us. Please continue your support of programs and agencies that make a positive impact in the lives of so many in Danville and Pittsylvania County. With community support, programs such as Book Buddies are able to continue to improve children’s reading skills, and agencies such as the Boys & Girls Club may continue preparing area youth for great futures, Goodwill Industries may continue training participants for better jobs, Danville Life Saving Crew may continue responding to emergencies, and Piedmont Access to Health Services may continue providing access to healthcare. These are just a few examples of how you are able to impact the areas of EDUCATION, INCOME and HEALTH within our community.
WE still need you….as our youth, individuals, and families wish to continue moving forward. With your help, we can provide new opportunities for some and simultaneously build upon the progress made by others.
WE still need you….but perhaps we need to clear up a couple of questions you may have. The answer is YES, there’s still time. As this year’s campaign will not end until 28 February. And YES, all dollars raised by this United Way office remain in Danville-Pittsylvania County.
Now, can we count on you? Please make your contribution now by clicking HERE.
Thank you for all you can do,
