It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. It’s a time when we give thanks, spend time with family and friends, reflect on the past year and enjoy all the wondrous offerings of the holiday season.
I especially want to focus on all the things I am thankful for as president and CEO of United Way of Tarrant County. First, I want to express my deepest thanks to our donors, both individual and corporate. Because of your generosity, United Way of Tarrant County helped more than 500,000 people in our community who found themselves in need because of the ongoing pandemic, the devastating winter storm earlier this year or other personal events.
I also want to express my sincere thanks to our community partners who allow United Way of Tarrant County to reach so many people by providing a direct link to the individuals and families who need our help the most.
Finally, I’d like to give my heartfelt thanks to the dedicated United Way of Tarrant County staff. Every day brings a new challenge and a new call to help those in need in our community. Our team has responded with the utmost urgency and graciously served our community.
This year was not easy, but the spirit, strength and resiliency shown by the community give me hope for the future and I am very excited as we move into 2022. The new year marks our Centennial, and we are looking forward to embarking on our second century of service to the Tarrant County community.
I have to say my heart is full of love and compassion for our community, and it is such an honor and privilege to serve Tarrant County.
From all of us at United Way of Tarrant County, we wish you a blessed holiday season.
Leah M. King
President and CEO
