LETTER: 37 consecutive years of pride

(metro creative)

To the Editor:

The Mitchell Area United Way Campaign and Board leadership want to extend our appreciation to all of the individuals and businesses who gave so generously to the 2018 campaign. It is with pride that we can announce that the $443,159 given in this campaign represents the 37 consecutive year in which the goal set by the Board of Directors has been met.

Reaching our goal ensures that the 31 agencies who receive support through the Mitchell Area United Way can continue to provide needed services to our citizens. A recent survey has indicated that one in three members of our community receive benefits from programs provided by the agencies we support. In addition, the care taken by the Board of Directors in selection of agencies for United Way support, along with the allocations of funds to each, results in 99 percent of all funds staying in the Mitchell area.

We offer our sincere appreciation to the many individuals, businesses and community groups, who worked together in meeting the needs of our Mitchell area neighbors and friends in 2018.

Darren Brewster, 2017 President

2017-2018 Campaign Chairman
