Living united benefits us all

To the editor:

My wife, Tyra, and I are happy to be the chairs for the 2019 campaign being conducted by the United Way of Jefferson County. Our goal is $400,000, and we are writing this letter to ask for your support.

This is your opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of our most vulnerable citizens. The 17 nonprofit agencies that receive funding through the United Way of Jefferson County need your generous donations to survive. These donations assist others with basic needs such as meals, personal supplies, health, education and utilities, and help to provide assistance when disasters hit. The United Way continues to do everything possible to improve the quality of life for those in need.

We sincerely thank those who already have given or committed, and graciously ask all others to do the same. We all win by living united.

Tom Timmons
