Letter: Support the United Way

Published 5:39 pm Friday, September 7, 2018

I have had the opportunity over the years to witness an awe-inspiring endeavor taking place in our community. It is the annual process where partner agencies of the Rowan County United Way meet with volunteers and caring citizens from all over the county to present their plans, programs and projected outcomes for the coming year. These volunteers evaluate every detail of each partner agency’s work and determine the amount of United Way funding the agency will receive. It is truly what being a community is all about — working together to meet the needs of the community.

The YMCA of Rowan County has been a United Way Partner Agency and proud recipient of Rowan County United Way support for years. As it has been with other non-profits/partner agencies in our community, Rowan County United Way support to the Y has been instrumental in improving the lives of the citizens in Rowan County. Without the financial support of United Way, the YMCA of Rowan County would be challenged to serve those who need us most.

The 2019 United Way Campaign will kick off on Friday, Sept. 14 at noon at the J.F. Hurley Family YMCA on Jake Alexander Boulevard in Salisbury. Please be part of it. Your gift will make a powerful, lasting impact on Rowan County lives. Simply call the United Way office at 704-633-1802 for details on how you can be a part of supporting your community.

Thank you in advance,

— Jamie Morgan

CEO, YMCA of Rowan County
