Brunswick County manager explains “Why I Give” to United Way of the Cape Fear Area.

Ann Hardy, Brunswick County manager

I give to the United Way of the Cape Fear Area because I have personally experienced that United Way and the agencies they support are truly helping my friends and neighbors when they find themselves in crisis while teaching them skills to become self-sufficient. In my role in county government, I often encounter people for which county staff does not have the resources to quickly give them the help they need. I have experienced people in need of food for their children on a late Friday afternoon. I was grateful that we have a relationship with United Way partner agencies and can place a call with the knowledge that the parents will have food to feed their children that evening and a path to receive tools to help them overcome their obstacles. United Way is an organization determined that it will maintain high standards of fiscal accountability, conduct independent audits, and timely reporting. I admire the distinguished volunteer board of directors for their leadership and passion in serving their community. I trust United Way of the Cape Fear Area to use my donations to the betterment of my home community.
