This year’s United Way campaign is well on its way. This week I thought I would share with you the story that comes from the Senior Citizens Association, one of the agencies the United Way serves. We are asking you to consider continuing your gift, if you are a past donor; or consider providing a new gift, if you have not participated in the past.
According to the Senior Citizens Association, an eighty-nine year old woman who resides in Florence lives alone. Her mobility is limited due to severe arthritis. She is receiving home delivered meals and assistance with light house keeping chores to aid her in retaining her independence. She feels stronger and better because “I have a community that cares about me.” She also feels that she has peace of mind in knowing that “I live in a community that is united and shows that they care.”
With your donation this year, you will receive a small token our appreciation from McLeod. But more importantly, you will impact lives in a very positive way through your act of generosity.
In addition to our McLeod Foundation, McLeod Health has approved employee fund-raising efforts on behalf of five community organizations which are in keeping with our mission and values: United Way, American Heart Association Cancer Society Relay for Life, Juvenile Diabetes Association and March of Dines.
Thank you for all you do to support McLeod Health and the United Way campaign in progress.
See your Department Director for more information on how to donate to this year’s campaign. Below is a link to the United Way website as well.
