My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Heartland United Way, Inc., Grand Island, NE, USA
I wanted to make a difference in the community that I live in! I love Grand Island, Nebraska, and I want to commit to helping others live their best lives. I am lucky enough to have an employer who encourages me to be involved in my community and give back. In August, I started as my employer's loaned executive chosen to help with the annual United Way campaign. I couldn't wait to get started! Today, I am visiting businesses and helping United Way staff with presentations. I am booking testimonies from our community partners and sharing their stories. I am volunteering to help organize fundraisers and educating others on how they can volunteer in the community. This experience has been invaluable! I am improving my public speaking skills, I am learning about new and old businesses in the community, and I am becoming educated on our community partners and how they help others. I am learning some very important life skills, sharing what I've learned with my workplace, making improvements to my workplace's campaign, and I am having so much fun along the way. Working for the United Way has given me a sense of pride in my community, in others and in myself. This is truly an amazing organization that cares!
