United Ways Team Up for Flood Relief
By: Melody Reed, Director, Resource Development: Student-Community Partnerships
Because of the generosity of Shell and its employees, United Way is engaging youth and young people in our community, with the hope of shaping tomorrow’s leaders.
Through your investment in your workplace campaign, we’re able to intervene at critical transition points in people’s lives to make a difference when it matters most. Together, we’re transforming the lives of thousands of individuals and families in need.
If not, you are fortunate.
But chances are you know someone who is living in poverty. Maybe someone in your neighborhood...perhaps a friend or even a family member.
United Way 2015-2016 Campaign Chair, Rick Haase, president, Latter & Blum, discusses what this place needs is You! We need more donors, advocates and volunteers to join us in our effort to reduce proverty. We do this by creating economic opportunity for everyone. To accomplish this goal we must unite. Hear his full message to the community below.
August 29, 2005 is indelibly etched in our minds as a day of heartaches and heroes. The world watched in horror as the southeast Louisiana landscape and our lives were forever changed by Hurricane Katrina. Just three weeks later, Hurricane Rita roared ashore causing additional damage. Generations from now the catastrophes of Katrina and Rita will still be defining points in our history. And, then, as now, United Way of Southeast Louisiana will proudly say it was here for you.
It’s an exciting time at United Way!
