The economic downturn that began three years ago still presents many challenges for us all. Doing more with less has become the standard for businesses and non-profits alike. Families and individuals struggle with reduced or lost wages, coupled with rising prices.
Demand for services continues to rise. According to 2-1-1 NH, United Way’s statewide information and referral service, the top inquiries made from Greater Nashua each month between September 2010 and February 2011 consistently were about basic needs, such as assistance for housing expenses, heating and electric bills, and food. Of the needs that went unmet during that period, many were due to available resources having been exhausted.
Conditions, while difficult, need not be seen as insurmountable. How we view the challenges before us largely will dictate how we respond to them and chart a course for the future. American inventor Thomas Edison observed, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” United Way’s leadership embraces the opportunities before our community and we welcome the work ahead as we seek to advance the common good.
As we move forward, United Way looks to forge more partnerships that will benefit the people who live or work in Greater Nashua. Remember that you, a United Way supporter, are a powerful force in helping our community thrive. Whether you give, advocate, or volunteer, you can lead by example. Bring your friends along and encourage them to LIVE UNITED. For it is by working together that we will transform our community’s challenges into opportunities.
