Happy to be part of Rowan United Way and its video
Trinity Living Center brings smiles and laughter in abundance to our participants. So when we heard that the United Way, working with a Catawba College intern and Miller Davis, was going to make “happy videos” (staff, participants, etc. dancing and having a good time with the song “Happy” playing in the background), we were excited. Our staff does their best to make every day a happy, uplifting day for our participants, so getting the participants and staff involved in the filming was just like any other day at TLC.
Trinity Living Center provides care to frail and elderly adults Monday – Friday. Participants receive nutritious meals, medical monitoring, assistance with daily activities, socialization, a wide range of activities and more. While our participants are being taken care of in a safe and loving environment, their family members are free to work, continue their education or just get a much needed break from the job of caregiver. Many families are able to keep their loved ones home much longer than they would be able to without our services.
Trinity Living Center is a Rowan County United Way agency. The assistance we receive from the United Way means so much to us and our participants. We are thankful for everything the United Way does for our agency and we’d like to send out a special thank you for going above and beyond the financial support they provide by making these very Happy videos that we are using to raise awareness of our program and the Rowan County United Way.
We would also like to thank all the citizens that have generously donated to this wonderful cause.
If you would like to contribute, please send your donations to Rowan County United Way, 1930 Jake Alexander Blvd. W, Salisbury, NC 28147 or go to www.rowanunitedway.org and make your donation online.

If this letter would save a sexual attack on a female of any age it would be worth writing.
If a man gets caught for attacking a female, he will spend some years in prison. If he was making $15 an hour, he would go down to about 11 cents an hour in prison. That would hurt his family moneywise and make his family ashamed. A man should think on these things before he attacks a female. He also would lose his freedom and not be able to go here or there and do this or that in this world. It would also hurt the female for life, maybe.

Trouble with the law?
I can tell you how to avoid trouble with the law. Obey it! Also, stop robbing and stealing.
