“United Way is the most efficient vehicle for delivering a strong community.”

Mike Evans, a retired Martin County resident, sees giving to the United Way as investing in the community. “We’re defined to a large degree by work, family and community. Anything we can do to make the community stronger benefits us, so I view it as an investment.” He has been involved with United Way for over 50 years starting with his first job out of college. Ever since then he has been contributing to the United Way in every community he has lived in. Mike feels that United Way is important because it provides us with a simple and effective way to invest in the local community.
