It’s official! United Way’s 2010-11 Community Campaign kicked off last week with an inspiring luncheon attended by top business and civic leaders. Campaign Chair Sandy Hostetter, President of CNLBank, urged the group to do everything possible to help our neighbors — and the community as a whole — get back on its feet.
Joining Sandy on stage at the end of the program were several local residents who were on the verge of losing everything until they received timely help from United Way and our partner agencies.
In thanking the group for sharing their stories, Sandy said, “You remind us that so many others like you are counting on us. Before we can ask for a hand, we must touch a heart. You give our story heart.”
