Why United Way of Northeast Georgia?
United Way of Northeast Georgia is certainly special to many of us, but sometimes it's hard to articulate why. Hear from our staff about why they believe in United Way of Northeast Georgia. And if you have a story to share, send it our way. We would love to hear why United Way of Northeast Georgia matters to you! Email Alison Geist with your story.
Thank you!
We want to thank all of you who joined us for our 2021 Campaign Kickoffs, for which we joined Rotary Club of Athens and Rotary Club of Winder to launch our campaign season. What a fun time it was to see everyone and celebrate the start of a new year - even if it is only September. If you are interested in learning more about how to start a workplace campaign or would like to partner with us in any way, we would love to share more! Please email Elizabeth Earl at eearl@unitedwaynega.org to set up a time to talk. Need some ideas for your workplace campaign? We'd be happy to share a few with you! Just take a look at Caterpillar for some inspiration.
