2010 ANNUAL REPORT

LIVE UNITED

LIVE UNITED. 1


Dear Friends, In 2010, we embarked on a historic journey to raise $5 million to help those in need in Midland County. This ambitious goal was set in response to the increasing needs throughout our community. This year’s United Way campaign focused on offering hope to our community. Jim “The Rookie” Morris joined us at the beginning of this quest, reminding us that “If you get enough people doing a little, it ends up being a lot.” Midland County is a place where people care about each other. This year’s United Way campaign truly illustrates the heart of our community, as we came together to raise a historic $5,003,820. I am so proud to be a part of such a generous and caring community. Every day, people just like you are making a promise to create a better life for our friends and neighbors in need, by sharing your time, talents and treasure. Your investment in United Way will continue to shape the future of Midland County. The board and staff are committed to partnering with our agencies and community to offer innovative solutions for those in need. Please accept my sincere gratitude for your continued support of United Way of Midland County and for “Living United” every day.
