Thank you to all of you who have contributed to the 2010 Finney
County United Way campaign. Finney County United Way is working hard in
this community to address the various needs that present themselves.
The mission is to focus our community and resources to make the
greatest difference in meeting identified human needs in Finney County.
We invite you to be a part of the change that we envision. With your
help, we can inspire hope and create opportunities for a better
tomorrow. Those could be empty words unless you have firsthand
experience with the folks that work in the 21 agencies that are
assisted by United Way community funds. They have the privilege of
The funds are yours. United Way is the manager of those funds, and
the agency clients are the beneficiaries. No one can take this task on
alone. That's what it means to LIVE UNITED.
Our goal is to create long-lasting changes that prevent problems
from happening in the first place. We are working to advance the common
good by focusing on education, health and financial stability. These
are the building blocks for a good life — a quality education that
leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through
retirement and good health.
As we strive to reach our $550,000, we look to you for financial
help. If you haven't sent in your contribution, please do so in order
that the needs can be met that will benefit all of us. Our mailing
address is P.O. Box 1268, Garden City, KS 67846. You will be part of
the mission, and you will be glad you were! Thank you.
Anderson is executive director of the Finney County United Way.
