It’s hard to believe, but this is the last issue of Feel Good Friday for 2022!
Looking back on the year, we realize how incredibly proud we are of our achievements. But more than that, we are deeply grateful for the many ways in which you helped make life in our community better and more equitable for all. Because the truth is, while we at UWDE are often on the front line, it is your encouragement, volunteerism, donations and support that make our work possible.
Whether you’re a donor, a partner agency, a legislator, a school teacher or administrator, a government official or employee, a child care provider, an after-school professional, a volunteer, a committee member, a corporate or a small business partner, a campaign coordinator, a friend who reads our emails…or any one of the thousands of people who reached out in some way to support and encourage UWDE in 2022…Thank You. Thank you a million times over.
As you gather with family and friends over the holidays, please take a moment to remember those for whom your support has meant so much. A child who has a winter coat, because of you. A family whose lights and heat are on, because of you. A senior who has a hot meal, a third grader who has learned to read and a teen whose future is brighter, all because of you.
And as we turn to face a new year, be assured that UWDE will be there with you, just as you have been there for us. There’s so much more to be done and we can’t wait to get going.
May you and yours be blessed with a healthful, peaceful and joyous holiday season.
