Today is a big day full of great folks and big learning here at United Way. During our annual giving campaign, companies designate an employee who will run their campaign.
At today's training sessions we will meet many of them - some first-timers and others who are "well seasoned". We will give them the tools they'll need to succeed and answer their questions.
Thank you to Mike Mercer for personally stopping by to share Bank of America's 2013 corporate gift with us yesterday.
During a period of 24 months, United Way visited 42 different groups of Buncombe County residents and asked 326 people about their dreams for a good community. We asked them what kind of community they want, what it means to have a good life, what gets in the way of that here, and what can be done to fix those obstacles.
We learned a lot and we are inspired by their thoughtful conversations with each other. People were sincere and forthright in their responses. When we compiled all the responses, we realized 4 strong themes from every conversation.
