We all have a stake in what befalls our fellow man. We all benefit when a child succeeds in school, when someone finds a job that will help them provide for their family, or when more people are able to access quality, affordable health care.
The solutions we create for communities around the world go beyond short-term charity for a few. When United Way’s support for Community Schools helps increase the graduation rate in the Vallejo City Unified School District by 11 percent in just three years, it’s not just the students, or even just the families of those students who benefit. Those proud graduates now have a much better chance of landing a job that pays a livable wage, of staying out of trouble with the law, and of living longer, healthier lives — and that translates into a safer, healthier and more prosperous community for everyone.
We rise or fall together. With your support, we are reaching for great new heights.

Harvest Project serves Metro-Vancouver’s North Shore, extending a hand up to those in need. Helping to restore our neighbours to health and stability benefits the whole community. Our vision is to enlarge our work as a sustainable and compassionate presence for North Shore residents, by North Shore residents.
In one of the wealthiest regions in Canada, critical family needs are often hidden and services are scarce for those who find themselves in desperate times. About 1 in 5 North Shore families are headed by a lone-parent – representing thousands of people. These families, and many others, are at-risk of losing access to physical, social and economic resources and opportunities.
For more than 20 years, Harvest Project has been reaching out to those who are experiencing extreme challenges with family break-downs, illness, job loss, and poverty. As a social enterprise, our programs provide individual client-coaching and active-listening, provision of food, clothing supports, assistance for workforce re-entry, food-recovery and redistribution, and our retail Clothes For Change Thrift Boutique.
The National Geographic Society has been inspiring people to care about the planet since 1888. It is one of the largest nonprofit scientific and educational institutions in the world. Its interests include geography, archaeology and natural science, and the promotion of environmental and historical conservation.

We are also sending out our Annual Membership Appeal this week and we hope you’ll consider donating to Vail Public Library. Previous donations have funded RFID and self-check, the Community Room’s audiovisual and technology improvements, as well as all equipment in the Tech Studio. This year’s donations will be used for our Digital Archives Initiative, to help fund opportunities for students in our community, and to develop new ways to serve our community.
The Red Cross, born of a desire to bring assistance without discrimination to the wounded on the battlefield, endeavors—in its international and national capacity—to prevent and alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found. Its purpose is to protect life and health and to ensure respect for the human being. It promotes mutual understanding, friendship, cooperation and lasting peace amongst all peoples.
It makes no discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions. It endeavors to relieve the suffering of individuals, being guided solely by their needs, and to give priority to the most urgent cases of distress.
In order to continue to enjoy the confidence of all, the Red Cross may not take sides in hostilities or engage at any time in controversies of a political, racial, religious or ideological nature.
The Red Cross is independent. The national societies, while auxiliaries in the humanitarian services of their governments and subject to the laws of their respective countries, must always maintain their autonomy so that they may be able at all times to act in accordance with Red Cross principles.
