WTOL Editorial: United Way sees new spirit of community cooperation

By WTOL Vice President and General Manager Bob Chirdon - email

The 2010 United Way campaign set a goal of $13.3 million and the early results have been most promising. 

My friend Sharon Speyer, the campaign chair this year, has been all over greater Toledo and sees a new spirit of cooperation and hope in our community. 

Speyer says she is so grateful for the companies that stepped up to set the pace for this year. 

In fact, she says The United Way is experiencing a surge of giving from all levels of our community.

However, the job is not finished. 

Please take one more look at the work The United Way does in our community. The United Way is always there. Your generosity will make certain it always is. 

Speyer says The United Way is committed to changing lives in our community where we work and live.

Thank you for helping others.
