Making a difference

TO THE EDITOR: An elderly neighbor receives lunch through Meals on Wheels.

Three new families are in the food pantry line because no matter how hard they try, the money isn’t enough to provide housing, utilities and food.

Disabled people can’t afford their insulin.

Mothers need help buying winter coats for their young children.

A mother and her children flee for their lives and with the help of Stop Domestic Violence they have a safe place to stay.

Area youth attend meetings where they learn valuable life skills through the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.

It’s hard to believe that most of these scenarios take place on a daily basis in our community. We get so caught up in our daily routines that we don’t take time to notice what’s taking place around us. Imagine the impact you could have on these situations with a single donation to United Way of the Adirondack Region Inc.

No one is immune to the problems facing our community today. In our ever-changing world, you never know when a family member, neighbor or even you may need a United Way service.

United Way makes it possible to give one gift that supports 41 local agencies. Your one gift does so much good, and the best part is 100 percent of donated funds remain right here in the North Country.

When you participate in the United Way campaign, you are saying yes to becoming part of the change, yes to building a stronger community for us all to live and raise our families.

Our goal is $775,000. But it’s not only about meeting the goal; it’s about meeting the need that continues to be very strong in these times.

Your donation will make a difference every day.
