“I used to work for a United Way agency and I experienced the rigorous requirement process for grant application and reporting, so I have full confidence that my personal donation is being well spent. The breadth and magnitude of services provided by different United Way agencies has served as a true safety net for this community.

It was easy to take on the role of ambassador for Women United efforts in my workplace. I have been so inspired by the women I’ve met through Women United that I was really excited about what we could do as a county organization. I love the way our Women United events bring us together, connecting us on different levels to forge alliances, friendships, mentorships.

There is so much to be gained by women working together – not against each other – supporting each other, learning from each other, building on each other’s successes and learning from our failures."
