"I was in a situation this year where I was out of work for over a year due to medical problems. My S&A [sick and accident benefits] was cut off and I was behind on my house payments. Local 1066 referred me to United Way for assistance. United Way returned my call promptly and helped me file for assistance. One of my house payments was paid.
I have donated to United Way since my employment at USS. Never thought it would be a service I would have to rely on. I always knew it was a service to help those in need, but never thought I would be that person. I truly appreciate what United Way has done for me. I am proof that your donations can not only help others but, in turn, can help yourself."
Thanks to donors, United Way is able to help people like Cheryl who live and work in our community. Cheryl is a perfect example of what it means to LIVE UNITED.
