What a great kick-off event we had yesterday! With over 350 in attendance, we had a terrific crowd!

 

In keeping with the campaign's news theme of "Brighter Headlines for Tomorrow," we decided to break with tradition and model our event after a morning news show. The goal was to have a fun, informative way of kicking off the annual campaign. Thanks to the efforts of a lot of people -we accomplished just that!

United Way: An Intern's Perspective
By: Shelby Johnson
As I finished my junior year at Ball State, I was unsure what my plans for the summer were going to be. I decided to start looking around the Muncie area for an internship opportunity. Through some research and connections, I found myself looking at United Way as a place I could see myself getting some "real world" experience as I prepare to graduate from Ball State next May.

After meeting with the United Way staff, I decided to accept an internship with Qiana O'Neal.  She seemed like the type of person who would be able to teach me some valuable tools I could use when I begin to search for a job of my own.  Not to mention, she seemed like a lot of fun.

I had never really thought about working with a non-profit agency until I was interested in this opportunity. I was aware that working in non-profit could tend to be a little more work, but I was not aware of how much more of a reward it seems to be...

Every day United Way of Delaware County (UWDC) is working along with our community partners to create brighter headlines for our community.  In the few short weeks that I have been here, I’ve heard some terrific stories of impact.  It’s amazing what can be accomplished when we come together to work for the common good.  Brenda Brumfield shared one such story with me recently.

July 8, 2013 was my first day as President/CEO of United Way of Delaware County.  As the second week of my new job comes to a close, I am reflective on our amazing community.  The outpouring of support and encouragement from the community as I took on this new and exciting opportunity has been wonderful.  But I am not surprised by it—because this is a community with a lot of heart that gets behind the work United Way is doing.

These are just a FEW of the quotes I captured during the last 3 days. The main point, I suppose, is that we all are working toward 1 common goal; to improve the lives of people in Delaware County. United Way of Delaware County is the catalyst for change in this community. “Not everyone is going to love us,” said Paul Debassio in one of the workshops I attended.  No, not everyone is going to love us, but I love us and the ability we have to create LASTING CHANGE in this community. 

LIVE UNITED.
