LIVE UNITED by #GIVINGTUESDAY

by PBUnitedWay

Thanksgiving is a day for giving thanks.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are days for getting deals.

#GivingTuesday is a day for giving back.

It’s a simple idea.  Just find a way for you, your family, your company or your organization to come together to give something more.  Then tell everyone you can about what you are doing and why it matters.  And together we can create ways to give more, give better and give smarter.

With the season of giving upon us, it is the time of year we come together as a community.  The holiday season reminds us of how fortunate we are and how much we have to be thankful for.   It also reminds us of our responsibility to care for those in our community who need help and support.

There are many ways you, your family and coworkers can make a difference today, this holiday season and all year long.   LIVING UNITED is about living your passion, uniting together to make a difference and create a better life for all.   What better time of year than the holidays?

GIVE.

A donation is the easiest and most powerful way to invest in your community.  Every gift counts.  Every donation is appreciated and does a multitude of good in our community.  Visit our website to donate to one of our partner agencies or the Town of Palm Beach United Way.

ADVOCATE.

Advocacy.  A singular voice speaking for those who cannot, or the joining of many voices.   The written word calling others to action.   Proudly wearing your LIVE UNITED shirt.  Advocacy is when we LIVE UNITED and take our message forward to the world.  Be sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest!

VOLUNTEER.

Volunteers are at the heart of making Palm Beach County a place where we all have a good life.   The Town of Palm Beach United Way works with volunteers and local nonprofits to develop the best opportunities for youth, busy working adults and seniors.  Visit our website to see all the volunteer opportunities available at our 50 partner agencies.

The Town of Palm Beach United Way board members, staff, volunteers and partner agencies work hard year-round to create a better quality of life for those in need.   While the Town of Palm Beach United Way unites the resources of donors and volunteers to identify the community’s most pressing needs, we still need your help to support the programs that are creating measurable results in our community.

The uniqueness of United Way is our ability to take small individual gifts and deeds and multiply and magnify those to reach throughout the community.   Whether mentoring a child in school, delivering meals to homebound seniors, or collecting toys and food for drives, we can each have a tremendous collective impact with our efforts, not only during the holiday season but throughout the year.

Since 1945, the Town of Palm Beach United Way has invested more than $60 million into Palm Beach County because of generous donors like you. Although some of the needs since 1945 have changed, the Town of Palm Beach United Way is still helping people who struggle with hunger, homelessness, job loss, abuse, mental illness, and more.  To find out more about the Town of Palm Beach United Way visit www.palmbeachunitedway.org.   On behalf of the community that we serve, THANK YOU for the difference you make.
