The United Way of Christian County is calling for area residents to step up and act out their motto of “Live United”, and give some of your time and effort to help a local cause, or even something as simple as listening to a neighbor.
Susan Lawrence is the Executive Director of the United Way of Christian County, and appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show. She says sometimes people can fall into a routine, and lose sight of who may be in need around them.
One way Lawrence urges people to give back to the community is through volunteering. She says there are many different volunteer opportunities through the United Way and it's member agencies, that will match many causes and schedules.
Lawrence also challenged listeners to make a trip to the grocery store and pick up some items to donate to your local food bank.
