United Way is especially needed now
To the editor:
Our community has experienced some extremely difficult time in the past few months. The effects of COVID-19 has put a strain on many our friends, neighbors and families. Suddenly people who have never needed assistance do.
The United Way campaign is one of the easiest ways to help those in our community who are in need. One hundred percent of the money raised during the campaign will stay here in Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties, and will be used to directly support programs and services provided by our 37 partner agencies.
I am extremely passionate about this cause and the campaign now more than ever. COVID-19 has changed so many things for our community and our neighbors are struggling. The United Way helps serve over 80,000 people every year — and that number will increase especially during these times.
Our campaign goal is to raise enough funds to be able to help everyone that we can during these trying times. For us to achieve this goal, we have to ask for help from the members our community.
Please give serious consideration to a contribution this year, your help could directly impact the health and wellbeing of our friends.
