My family has used United Way services. Not many realize they too have used services provided by a United Way agency. My kids have been in 4-H, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Home delivered meals for my grandmother and the SERVE bus takes her to do her shopping. And, the Red Cross contacted my cousin while he was overseas.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The United Way touches all of our lives at some time.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None at this time.
