My name is Blanche Cheeley.
I decided to share my story because of the help my mother and my family received from United Way when I was growing up.
If you’ve not viewed my story, please take a few minutes now.
Because of the support we received from United Way and other community resources, I was able to break the cycle of generational poverty. I was able to have a successful career.
I wanted to give back to United Way to help others be able to rewrite their stories- to be able to move from poverty to possibility – like I was.
After hearing my story, many folks have asked, how can I get involved? How can I make a gift? How can I join the movement to end local poverty?
So, thank YOU for your interest in supporting United Way of Greater Greensboro. Your gift will help local children, families and adults get the supports they need to leave poverty behind.
