“I give because it’s important for me to support my community when I can. Bad things can happen to any one of us at any time, and United Way–funded programs support us through those bad times.”

—Candice Lucas, director of Health Partnership and Cancer Services Program of Monroe County, Center for Community Health

“My contribution to the United Way is one of the easiest decisions I make every year. For me, it is more than the critically important benefits my donations provide to my favorite charities or what it means to the United Way and the high quality services they offer to the region. It is a statement of how I envision this community and ensuring that we are taking the necessary steps to meeting the needs of our neighbors now and into the future.”

—Josh Farrelman, director of the Office of Government and Community Relations
