United Way of Virginia's Eastern Shore
United, we "SHORE" can make a difference!
We are kicking off the 2017 United Way Campaign! By giving to our local United Way of Virginia’s Eastern Shore, you can make a difference right here at home.
One benefit of supporting your favorite charity through the United Way is that it is an employer-sponsored campaign. An employer-sponsored campaign allows employees to give to a charity of their choice via automatic payroll deduction. This gives employees the opportunity to support their community over the course of a year instead of a one-time donation. It is much easier, for me, to have $10.00 deducted from each payroll versus writing a one-time check for $240.00.
I know what you are thinking…you are on a budget and money is tight. If you are honest with yourself, you could probably come up with one thing that you could do without: a vending machine snack, your favorite fancy coffee, or lottery tickets. I equate my $10 per pay to a fast food meal that I definitely do not need.
In preparing for this letter, I realized that last year marked Accomack County’s 20th campaign. County employees have given almost $64,000. That is truly amazing! Think of all the lives that this money has touched: Little League, Boys & Girls Club, Food Bank, fire companies, Eastern Shore Area Agency on Aging, SPCA, Public Library, Hospice of the Eastern Shore, and many more.
Thank you again for making this possible!
