Why support United Way?

To the editor:

I was asked this week, “Why should you/I donate to CC United Way?” and that is a good question. When I think about it, the news media tells us all about catastrophes happening all around our country, but are not able to know about private catastrophes that are happening in individual lives right here in our community.

I cannot financially support all 14 local agencies that partner with CC United Way.

I can make a donation to CC United Way and my donation with your donation makes it possible for all of us to help fund all 14 agencies.

In turn these 14 local agencies work toward alleviating the needs (that feel like catastrophes) of individuals both young and older in our community. How will you answer that question?
