Volunteering during the 2019 United Way ABC Days of Impact

At Allen Tate/Beverly-Hanks, we believe that every person in our community should have the opportunity and means to Live Abundantly in WNC. There is perhaps no better way to accomplish this than by Living United—a culture of advocacy and support engendered by the United Way.

Today, we take a closer look at our local independent United Way agencies that make a difference in our communities every day.

What is the United Way?

United Way is a nonprofit agency working through community-based and community-led solutions to build a caring community where everyone has the opportunity to achieve. There are nearly 1,800 United Way offices in communities across more than 40 countries and territories worldwide. They are focused on strengthening the cornerstones for a good quality of life: education, financial stability, and health. 

Why does Allen Tate/Beverly-Hanks Live United?

As an international organization, the United Way believes that we all have a stake in what happens to our fellow man. Or woman. Or child. And that work begins close to home.

Every child who succeeds in school is a success for everyone. Every woman with access to quality, affordable healthcare has a greater chance to live the life she chooses. Every man empowered with the skills to work a living wage position is a man who adds to the prosperity of his entire community.

In short, the mission of the United Way, both globally and locally in Western North Carolina, is to help people and their communities LIVE UNITED.

That is a mission Allen Tate/Beverly-Hanks has stood for since the beginning.

Our tradition of support continues

After 45 years in Western North Carolina, Allen Tate/Beverly-Hanks understands the power and importance of strong communities. That’s why we’re so grateful for all the community resources provided by our local United Way agencies.

We’re also very proud of our agents, many of whom are actively involved on United Way boards and with other community connections. We know that even though our busy agents work to build community year round, they won’t hesitate to come together to support a great cause before the holidays.

That’s why we are holding our annual corporate pledge drive again this fall. As a company, we’ve already given $38,500 toward local United Way efforts so far this year. And our agents and staff are on track to pledge even more to support United Way’s efforts in the coming year. In addition, we look forward to contributing many hours of volunteer support, as well. Nothing will stop us from Living United every day.

You can Live United, too.

Live United by giving back

Every day, our agents and staff impress us by their involvement in strengthening community efforts through service and financial support. We encourage you to get involved, too.

Support our neighbors now and in the future! Your local United Way agencies are always looking for support in the forms of time, funding, and professional skills. We encourage you to reach out to your nearest United Way today or contact your Allen Tate/Beverly-Hanks agent to learn about local fundraising efforts in our community.
