We are thrilled to share that Parsec Financial has awarded our organization their Parsec Prize. Here is the press release they've issued:
The Hero Effect is an uplifting docu-series that brings to life the stories of ordinary individuals who are making extraordinary differences in their communities. Shot on location in ten different communities across the country, each episode brings audiences real-life stories that show the impact one person can make.
Ensuring that all students have someone to help them carry those heavy bags is no easy task, because it isn’t always just about supporting the student; it is also about helping their family and community navigate these issues too.
Here at 50 South French Broad avenue, United Way staff work in the bottom quarter of the building. The rest of the building is rented by tenants from non-profits and businesses. Each month, we will be highlighting one of these organizations to share with you.
This month, it's Arts for Life
People who give of their personal time to care for others are among some of the best people in the world. Here at United Way, we get to meet a lot of those folks and we try to shine a spotlight on them - in thanks for what they do but also to inspire others.
