Be a super hero for United Way
Placeholder Image
From Susie Speer Executive Director, United Way of Green County, Inc.To the editor,This year's United Way campaign theme challenged us all to "Find Our Inner Hero" and to provide help for those needing it in our community.Employees of Colony Brands and Monroe Clinic certainly stepped up to meet that challenge, each holding record-setting campaigns to support the United Way in its work to provide vital services for families and individuals throughout Green County.Recognizing the need for local programs that provide help every day to people in our community, these two area businesses supported the efforts of their employees as they worked to raise the most money they have ever raised in a United Way campaign. Colony Brands and Monroe Clinic employees each increased their largest previous United Way campaigns by more than 7 percent with the individual campaigns of each company reaching nearly $68,000.It doesn't take a cape and goggles or a special uniform to be a super hero; it takes caring about the needs of people in our community and doing what you can to help. We salute Colony Brands, Monroe Clinic and their employees for serving as "heroes" to those needing help in our community.
