Spring, Training Opportunities, events, and Reasons To Support Green Mountain United Way’s Annual Community Campaign!

 


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

 



Dear Supporter,

Here at Green Mountain United Way, engaging our communities and partners on a variety of levels is truly changing how we see poverty. It is not simply a lack of money, but the missing opportunity for prosperity. And therein lies what we really do. We work to empower people to build, identify, and grasp that opportunity for prosperity for themselves or to help others discover their individual purpose.
We educate through understanding of past, present, and future with events like the showing of Resilience and the accompanying panel discussion; we provide access to resources through programs like Working Bridges; we create opportunities for people to give back through volunteering at our Day of Caring, and to gain the opportunity to build their own personal sense of value and community connection.
I invite you to join us in building those opportunities within our communities from the ground up so that everyone in Caledonia, Essex, Orange, Orleans and Washington Counties may know prosperity and LIVE UNITED.

In gratitude,
Tawnya Kristen
Executive Director
