With many thanks...

By Eloisa Herrero

Last Friday, during the United Way Day of Action about one hundred volunteers joined forces hoping to change somebody's  life for the better. Our volunteers worked very hard on a very humid Texas day. They delivered fans, did yard work, built an outdoor classroom, painted a fence and a playroom, did some home repairs, collected items, etc.
During the day, we heard stories about how much people appreciated the volunteers' hard work. One volunteer even said that for the first time she "experienced" United Way".

Today, at the GLUW office, we received a thank you note from one of the households where some home repairs were done. We would like to share this wonderful thank you note.

The impact of the day goes so much farther than simply mowing a yard or repairing a home. We join this homeowner and the hundreds of other lives touched in thanking the volunteers and local organizations who made such a huge difference in our community. 

That is what it means to LIVE UNITED.
