Message From Dr. Shawn D. Foster
I encourage you to join me in giving to those in need through our United Way workplace campaign. United Way plays a vital role in our community—filling gaps, tackling emergent needs, and taking on longstanding challenges like child literacy and homelessness. Let's rally together to make life better for everyone in the Midlands.
Workplace campaigns like ours give United Way the resources they need to touch more lives in the community. When you give to them, know that your money stays in the Midlands, serving Calhoun, Fairfield, Lexington, Newberry, Orangeburg and Richland counties. It's a great way to support multiple causes, knowing that your money is used efficiently and where it's needed most.
I know we're up to the challenge to give back and give big. I'd like to extend a special thanks to our campaign team who is leading this effort, ensuring it's fun and fulfilling for all of you. I'm proud to work with so many people who care deeply, not only about our work but also about our community. It’s what makes us great leaders and partners. Join me in supporting the mission of United Way of the Midlands in whatever capacity you can.
3-21 Let’s Give!
