It is about being part of something that is so much bigger than myself. It is about being part of a movement – a change for the better in our communities. In this era of division and discord, I really would encourage people to come together and support area agencies and non-profits like United Way and be that change for good. It really is a wonderful way to show your love and support for your local community.
