Support the United Way

The rising costs of housing, health care, utilities, and education, coupled with changes in the economy have left many hardworking individuals struggling to-support themselves and their families. In fact, one in three Americans uses a credit card to cover basic needs such as rent, utilities and food. Not since 1928 has the income gap in the United States been as large as it is today.

As our nation's individuals and families struggle to make ends meet, it is more critical than ever that we do what we can to help those in need in our community. As more and more of our neighbors are less than one paycheck away from homelessness, we have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people right here at home. By contributing to the annual United Way campaign, we are helping to fund the vital services necessary to help people get on, and stay on, their feet. Whether it's through financial security, early childhood education, or general health and well-being, our contributions go a long way to support the programs that advance the common good for all of us.

The Arkansas AFL-CIO and AFSCME Local 965 proudly endorse the 2007 United Way campaign and urge you to support the 2007 United Way campaign. By contributing as generously as you can, you are investing in our community
, in our neighbors, and in our future.
