As Idahoans, we have the great fortune of living in a beautiful state filled with vibrant communities. As public servants, we spend our days serving our fellow citizens to the best of our abilities. I am particularly proud that our State employees´ share in common the commitment to making an impact by giving to the annual charitable giving campaign.
I have seen firsthand how our efforts help change the lives of our fellow Idahoans. From the smiles of children prepared to enter pre-K programs, to women who now are safe and independent but once lived in shelters to escape domestic violence, we see how charitable giving can make a difference in the life of a an individual, or a family.
As the 2014 campaign kicks off, I personally invite you to join me in supporting the United Way and the many worthy organizations in need of our help. Fill out your pledge card today, and join me in helping those in need.
Investing in meaningful organizations plants the seed from which our society will grow stronger, and your generosity benefits us all. Thank you for caring about the future of our great State of Idaho.
