United Way of Greater Kingsport • 2012

Comments from Campaign Chair and Board President This area is known for its natural beauty: the vast expanses of each season’s colors and mountains reaching ever upward invite awe and wonder. That’s nature at its best. This area is also known for the way its citizens come together to help each other and build a better community. That’s human nature at its best. Together, we continue to build upon a rich legacy to create a brighter future for our community. That’s what it means to Live United. Just as a tree can emerge from the roughest mountain terrain, hope can spring in the most desolate circumstances. How powerful it is, then, when we give hope a hand. United Way, other community organizations, and citizens just like you are exploring and addressing our community’s most critical immediate needs and creating a path to create positive, lasting change.

A part of my reinvention was supported by Girls, Inc. When my daughter was at Girls, Inc., I had peace of mind, because I knew that she was in a safe, secure environment. It helped us both get back on our feet and move forward. Now, it’s my turn to give something back. There are so many people out there in need. If we can help, it is our duty to do so.” — Linda Bambino, fundraising volunteer.
