Dear editor: To the citizens of Bryan County:
On behalf of the 2010 Campaign Committee, United Way of the Coastal Empire, Bryan County Office, we would like to offer this brief report and appeal in the waning days of our campaign.
First, the report: we are at 64 percent of our modest goal of $75,000. We’re so very grateful for the generous contributions of hard-earned dollars by so many of you – our most concerned and caring citizens. Thank you! But there’s still work to do. With the campaign scheduled to conclude Nov. 19, we feel we should be closer to our goal. We believe Bryan County has the capacity and the heart to do better.
United Way and its supported organizations do so much to help those in need in our community. Helen’s Haven Children’s Advocacy Center intercedes and responds on behalf of child abuse victims. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) helps children find their way through the maze of the judicial system. United Way and supported programs provide food, shelter, utilities, clothing, transportation, caring and companionship to our community’s low-income elderly, disabled and most isolated and vulnerable citizens. From the Rape Crisis Center to Boy/Girl Scouts to American Red Cross, United Way and its supported agencies impact our lives in positive and necessary ways every day.
So now, the appeal: please visit or call Area Director Janice Blunt at 653-5344 and learn more about United Way. Volunteer your time. If you own a business, be a Caring Club Merchant. And please don’t forget to make a donation – no matter the size.
Thank you!
