Welcome to our reformatted UnitedWay of Southwest Virginia newsletter! You’ll notice some changes that might have you worried about the cost. Please know that we are decreasing the number of times we send the newsletter to two a year, to cut down on the cost of postage and production. We hope you will enjoy the new, magazine-style format. To keep up with news about our agencies and the work of UnitedWay powered projects like Smart Beginnings, Virginia Quality, the Healthy Community Action Team and others, make sure you visit www.unitedwayswva.org. While you are there you can sign up for our monthly e-newsletter. We hope you will connect with us via social media, too. Visit www.facebook.com/unitedwayswva and like our page to get daily updates or our Vimeo channel www.vimeo.com/unitedwayswva to see our videos. We have just finished grant allocations for the 2016-2017 funding year. You may review a list of partner agencies on our website at www.unitedwayswva.org/grants. I am impressedwith the number of caring people all across our community. Our partner agencies provide the passion, expertise and resources to advance the common good. The agencies we work with are focused on education, income and health – the building blocks for a good quality of life. The people who work in the agencies commit long hours to create a better region for all of us to live, work and raise families. Finally, I am happy to introduce Carolyn Koesters, Cassandra Caffee, Mary Anne Holbrook, and Briana Morris. All four of these ladies are welcome additions to our team. Travis W. Staton, CEO
