United Good Neighbors
To the editor,
Pat Sullivan, UGN President
United Good Neighbors impacts our community year-round. By contributing to Prosser's annual UGN fund drive, donors support programs for two of our most important assets: our youths and our seniors.
Dollars donated to the local UGN help fund many organizations, including the Prosser Boys and Girls Club, Prosser Swim Team, Prosser Youth Soccer, Prosser Senior Citizens Club and Meals on Wheels.
For decades, the donations made to the United Good Neighbors have helped our Prosser neighbors when they have needed critical services. For example, through Senior Life Resources, Meals on Wheels provides meals for home-bound senior citizens who are unable to attend lunch at the senior center. In 2013, this service provided 10,280 meals, including 4,907 home-delivered meals to 141 seniors and 5,373 meals served at the senior center.
Annually, thoughtful donors enable the Prosser UGN to support important community services as well. One example is the Prosser Boys and Girls Club. This organization receives collaborative funding from various grant programs, the City of Prosser, Prosser School District, private contributions and UGN. This is a perfect example of community support and investment in our children and our future. It is truly "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" in action.
These are only two examples of the great support UGN provides to our community. To be a successful community, we need to depend on each other and support each other. By donating to UGN, you become part of the chain that is dedicated to seeing our community and neighbors succeed!
We welcome your donation at any time. Thank you for your support!
