You are here
This week has been incredibly difficult for our whole community, and particularly for children.
At this time of year, resolutions are everywhere. Setting goals is important, but the true key to success is to also create a plan. Just like you, United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County is committed to success. We are just a few days away from January 1. Which means our organization is wrapping up a 3-year strategic plan and will begin implementing our 2018-2020 plan next week.
This time of year we humans are compelled to look back and assess what was important and determine how we want to move forward. Looking at our top 3 News stories here are the ones that rose to the top, and some updates since we first published:
It's the end of the year so obviously we are required by law to conduct SOME kind of "Best of 2017" list. So we thought we'd share the most popular blogs from the past year, just in case you missed them.
You read that blog title right. Since January of 2014, Monika, our team mate and friend, handled more than 20,000 INCOMING phone calls in her role as an information and referral specialist for NC 2-1-1. When we specify "incoming" that means that these are just the calls that came into our call center, what it doesn't include are the thousands and thousands of calls that she made on behalf of those people in our community.
Our partners at Owen Middle School are holding their annual Holiday Craft Fair which features local artists and supports the middle school itself. It's a win/win for you, local artists and local kids. Check it out!
