United Way's Leadership Givers rallied at Wedge last week to recommit to building a better community through philanthropic initiative and to celebrate the many wonderful outcomes that are a result of it. Another great event in recognition of great people. Our thanks to Dixon Hughes Goodman for their continued sponsorship of this amazing group of people, Whole Foods for catering the event and Wedge for hosting us again this year. And most of all, thank you to the nearly 1,000 Leadership Givers who continue to champion the cause of reducing the impact of poverty on the lives of children, their families and our community.
United Way's annual School Supply Drive kicks off July 9th and runs through the 27th. Our theme this year is Backpack to the Future. When you donate school supplies TODAY, you are making an investment in each child and in our community's FUTURE. The goal of the project is to send as many students as possible back to school with the basic supplies necessary for educational success. YOU play a significant role in making that happen. Here's how.
