Bridge The Gap. Build Our Future.

United we build our bridge to a better community.

United Way Workplace Campaigns are held at small businesses and large corporations in a variety of industries. They are the backbone of United Way’s fundraising activities. During the campaign, employee campaign committees encourage employees to help people in our county by donating to United Way. They motivate people to give back by educating them about community needs.

You may find this hard to believe, but in Brevard County one child out of four goes to bed hungry. That child could be your neighbor’s child. He could be your sister’s child. She could be your child’s best friend.

During this year’s PMC United Way Campaign we have the opportunity to help these children—and many others of all ages—by uniting to build our bridge to a better community.

United Way’s work is focused on building bridges with the building blocks of a good life—education, income and health.

PMC care partners have done an excellent job of living our mission to bring healing experiences to everyone all the time, while keeping costs down for our community members. In the same way, United Way of Brevard has an exemplary history of ensuring the money raised each year goes right back into the community—92% of funds raised are distributed to 46 different local programs.

These programs help residents of all ages, from babies to seniors and include 211 Brevard, Aging Matters in Brevard (which sponsors Meals on Wheels), American Red Cross, The Children's Center, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts in Brevard County, Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, North Brevard Charities Sharing Center, The Salvation Army, Second Harvest Food Bank – Brevard Chapter, The Women's Center, and the YMCA to name just a few.

Your past, present and future contributions to our local United Way are a powerful foundation that can improve the lives of others. With payroll deduction, it is convenient to give back. Spreading your donation throughout the year makes it easier to increase your giving, while still staying within your budget.

Thank you for your loyalty and dedication to our mission, vision and values. It truly distinguishes PMC from all others. I appreciate your thoughtful consideration in joining me this year in support of United Way of Brevard and helping to build our bridge to a better community.
