2011 ANNUAL REPORT

UNITED WAY OF MIDLAND COUNTY

LIVE UNITED. 1


Dear Friends, In 2011, we embarked on a journey to help raise $5 million to build a stronger community. This ambitious goal was set in response to increasing needs throughout Midland County. This year’s United Way campaign focused on the 5 L’s of Living: Laugh, Listen, Love, Learn and Live. The inspirational comedy of Judson Laipply reminded each of us that “There are so many out there who need our help; they need us to donate money, time, energy, spirit and enthusiasm.” That simple reminder became the rallying cry for this year’s campaign. Midland County is a place where people care about each other. This year’s United Way campaign truly illustrates our compassion and caring spirit, as we came together to raise a record-setting $5,018,614. I am so proud to be a part of such a generous and committed community. Every day, people just like you are lending a hand to create a better life for everyone 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 who need it most. Please accept my sincere gratitude for your continued support of United Way of Midland County and for “Living United” every day.
