With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I am grateful for those who have made a difference in the lives of others by pledging to the 2004 Heart of Kentucky United Way campaign. The Heart of Kentucky United Way is thankful for the services and programs the 27 partner agencies provide, which yearly improve the lives of 30,000 children and adults in Central Kentucky.
We hope to finalize this year's campaign before Christmas. To date, we have commitments totaling $662,520 (two thirds) of our goal of $990,000. We must reach this goal to meet the identified needs in our local communities and to avoid cutting the services and programs our partner agencies provide.
Our mission, to provide the best way for the community to invest in caring for one other, becomes a reality when local citizens contribute to Heart of Kentucky United Way, enabling us to distribute community resources where they are needed most. United, we are stronger than we are individually.
