Happy Almost Thanksgiving!
On behalf of our Board of Directors we want to take this opportunity to thank  our caring community for helping Batavia United Way create better opportunities for all.  
Together .......we are changing lives!
The Batavia United Way 5K/10K, held on Saturday, October 22, was a great success!  Thanks to all participants, the very generous sponsors and dozens of volunteers who made this event possible!  All proceeds from this event will benefit the 17 area not-for-profit agencies we support.   Make sure to see yourself, friends or family in our event pictures by clicking here:   
We are thankful too, for the support and kindness of Pal Joey's Restaurant as they hosted our annual Community Pancake Breakfast coinciding with the 5K/10K. Hundreds of runners, walkers and spectators enjoyed a hot breakfast while our incredible volunteer crew flipped and served!
On a sunny November 6th, over 80 energetic and enthusiastic high school students divided and conquered fall leaf raking at 14 homes in Batavia. Not only did these senior citizens appreciate your labor, they loved the energy and smiles you brought to the task. Thank you for your kindness and for being such a good neighbor! Thank you Dan Bomabrd for organizing all of us too! 

Batavia United Way is ready to orchestrate the adoption of over 80 low income Batavia families in need of a holiday boost this season.  If you are interested in adopting a family, donating much needed gift cards, donating a single item from our master wish list, or donating dollars for us to shop, please email us at:
info@bataviaunitedway.org. It will be a Merry Christmas for all!

This is a global day to celebrate giving with the single aim of encouraging us to give back to the less fortunate.
