At United Way of the Greater Miss Lou we embrace the idea that no man is an island – we all depend on each other.
What does it mean to LIVE UNITED? It starts with recognizing that we’re all in this together, then acting on that knowledge.
Whether or not we know a child on the other side of town, it should matter to us whether that child grows up to be a contributing member of this community. We have a stake in that, and a responsibility to do our part.
For a building to be stable for the long term, it needs a solid foundation. The same is true in life, and the building blocks for a solid life are a strong education, financial stability, and good health.
This is also true in the community, and the building blocks for a solid community are a strong public education system, economic prosperity and quality health care.
The measure of the United Way of the Greater Miss Lou is not in the fundraising campaign, but in the ways we are impacting the community – in connecting people across the Miss Lou, and improving the foundations of our communities.
United Way of the Greater Miss Lou does the critical but largely invisible work required to reach community goals – we recruit people to the cause, get commitments for action, and pull together the expertise and resources to get it done.
It takes an entire community to make a difference, and we need you!!!
