United Way Deadline November 30th

Most of us are busy preparing for the holiday season and looking forward to spending time with our families and friends. Yet, it is so easy for each of us to forget those who are unfortunate and in need of holiday cheer. We all know friends, colleagues and family members who have lost their jobs over the last few years and the terrible stress placed on their families. In spite of this, we can help by contributing to the Long Island United Way. Your weekly pledge can do so much to help a family in need. Several weeks ago I spoke of our long time support of the United Way at the National Grid United Way Captains kick-off meeting and spoke about how proud I am of our Members who, sometimes under the most difficult times, come through year in and year out to support children and families in our communities who need our help. Please continue to make our Local a shining star in the Long Island community and if you have not filled out your pledge form do it today. If you still haven’t received a pledge form from your 1049 Captain, please click here to download a form or you may contact the Union Office or Director Ellen Redmond at 631-234-1800, and we will forward one to you. Please do it today as our campaign ends November 30, 2010. On behalf of our Officers, Executive Board and Staff I would like to thank you for your continued generosity and wish you and your family a safe, happy, healthy and happy Thanksgiving.
