The fall season is one of my favorite times of the year. The air is cooler. The leaves are changing color. Friends and family gather on weekends for tailgates and football! But I also treasure this season of Thanksgiving. It is a time to reflect on all the blessings that we enjoy. I am so thankful for each of you who give of their time, talent, and treasure to make our community stronger and impact the lives of those around you. From serving on Boards, stacking shelves at the food pantry, collecting winter coats for the shelter, to delivering meals for homebound seniors – each act of kindness makes our community the wonderful place that it is! Thank you for your support for the work of United Way and its partnering agencies and programs in Lee County.  Just IMAGINE the Possibilities …when we all work together! Happy Holidays! - Becky
Campaign Update
We have reached 67% of our goal!
The holiday season is upon us, but the United Way campaign is still underway! We are extremely appreciative for all the contributions we have received. We could not make such a positive impact without the support of our wonderful community. We are currently at 67% of goal, and what better way to show we are thankful for than by giving to United Way to support our partner agencies and programs. Please continue to help us reach our goal of 100%.
