The holiday season is a time for many of us to reflect on our blessings. We are thankful for the love of family and the warmth of friends. I know this season I am feeling especially grateful to live in such a generous and caring community.
Did you know we can be a hero to a child in need; we can help a family through tough times; we can give assistance to a senior citizen? Your support of the United Way does just that.
The United Way funds are raised one dollar -- and one donor -- at a time and will go to help support the critical work of the 33 United Way local partner programs.
As we enter this season of giving, I want to express my sincere thanks to each person in the Becker County area who gave of their resources -- time, money, and in many cases both -- to United Way. Thank you for caring, sharing and giving and making our communities healthier and stronger places to live.
Blessings to you all this holiday season. -- LuAnn Porter, United Way of Becker County executive director
