Letter to the Editor: United Way campaign chair offers thanks
I am absolutely overwhelmed with gratitude to this community for the support that you have shown to the United Way of Indiana County. It was wonderful to celebrate exceeding the 2013 goal for the campaign with donations of more than $737,170.
As the volunteer committees begin making decisions about how best to allocate your generous donations, please know that we appreciate every single dollar that you have entrusted to us. You are the reason why these partner agencies and the United Way grant programs can continue to impact one in two people in Indiana County. Thank you for your generosity and for your faithfulness to the United Way.
I also want to take this opportunity to recognize all of the retiring board members and past campaign chairs. Thank you for your wisdom and for paving the way. It’s been an honor to serve with you. As I said during the breakfast celebration, I have been standing on the shoulders of giants, and I will never forget your patience, your support and your encouragement.
In short: thank you, thank you, thank you. It’s been a wonderful year because of all of you.
I have never been more proud to call Indiana County my home.

chair, 2013 United Way Campaign
