March Newsletter – New Events, Program Expansion, and Volunteer Opportunities!

Spring is here, so are new training opportunities, events, and reasons to support Green Mountain United Way’s Annual Community Campaign!

Dear Community Members,

Spring is a time of renewal, and we’re seeing a renewed passion to be involved, for making a difference, and for mobilizing change within our communities. This renewal bridges generations, existing communities and groups, as well as the needs and life experiences. In the midst of this revitalization, one thing remains the same – Vermonters care about one another and are here to listen, understand and work hard to solve problems that impact all of us. At Green Mountain United Way, we are proud to be part of these conversations and to bring people together to foster understanding and community that crosses these traditional lines.

I hope you will join us as we work toward the common good of all in our communities. This is what LIVE UNITED means here, in the communities of our five counties, and this is where renewal begins.

In gratitude,

Tawnya Kristen
Executive Director
