Letter: Many have contributed to United Way's success
As we draw close to the end of another year, I would like to take this time to thank everyone who contributed to the success of Rowan County’s 2007 United Way campaign. It amazes me each year the number of volunteers that assist the United Way and give of their time outside of their day-to-day responsibilities at work and at home.
In 2006, our 16 United Way member agencies served over 54 percent of Rowan County’s population. We would not have been able to provide these services and support to those in need without the dedicated volunteers and generous contributions of individuals and companies across our county. Your continued commitment and passion to serve others does not go unnoticed. On behalf of all the United Way agencies, thank you for making a difference in the lives of others and our community.
