You’re Invited to Celebrate, New Volunteer Opportunities, & Updates!

Dear Community Supporter,

With Autumn fast approaching and summer fading into the rearview, we have so many things to share that I’ll keep this update very short. This has been a busy summer of connecting, planning, building and growing here at Green Mountain United Way. Don’t miss any of the news below highlighting the launch of a new financial coaching program, K.E.E.P., expansion of Working Bridges, the Fall Day of Caring & Annual Kickoff Breakfast launching the official start of 2017-18 Workplace Campaigns on September 21.
I invite you to join us in building these and many more opportunities within our communities so that everyone in Caledonia, Essex, Orange, Orleans and Washington Counties may know prosperity and LIVE UNITED.

In gratitude,
Tawnya Kristen
Executive Director
