We Need A HERO!!!
“The ordinary man is involved in action, the hero acts.
An immense difference.”
Be a partner in your own community - accept
the Community Challenge and help us meet our
goal by giving YOUR fair share!
United Way Orange County is beginning our 2014 campaign
to raise money to support our 23 Partner Agencies. Although
we face a difficult obstacle in our fundraising campaign due
to the current state of the economy, the needs in our
community are too important to ignore. Ironically, even
though the need for services from our agencies continues
to increase, the impact of this economy has caused a
reduction in charitable contributions. We are turning
directly to our community in these days of the
fundraising campaign with this simple message:
We need your help so we can help others!
Be a HERO! A cape and mask are not required – all you
need is a desire to help others. Your United Way is
prepared to rescue children, seniors and families in
times of need.
