Community Change
DID YOU EVER HEAR ABOUT SOMEONE...

Who had lost his home to fire and had no place to stay?
Who was a battered wife and had no place to go to get away from the beatings?
Who needed help to pay the heating bills?
Who was hungry, or needed warm clothes?
Who was old and had no place to go?

DID YOU EVER WISH THAT YOU COULD HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THESE PEOPLES' LIVES?

WELL, NOW YOU CAN!

And for less than two pennies a day!
Two cents means little to you, but it means a great deal to these people.

NOW YOUR POCKET CHANGE CAN CHANGE OUR COMMUNITY!

The CITY OF UNION is pleased to announce a new program to help needy families and people in Union County. 
It's called
COMMUNITY CHANGE
  • COMMUNITY CHANGE is a way for the people of Union to join together and help folks who are down on their luck and need a hand up.

 

  • Here's how the program works.  Each month the utility bills of participating customers are rounded to the next highest dollar.  Your monthly donation can range from one penny to ninety-nine cents per month and usually totals about six dollars a year.

 

  • All of the money collected from each customer will be given to the Salvation Army to administer.  The money will stay in Union County to provide emergency shelter, food, clothing, and other basic needs to Union people.

 

  • The Salvation Army of Union County will supplement this money by raising additional funds from businesses, churches, and individuals.  COMMUNITY CHANGE will allow an emergency shelter to be built that will administer to the the needy in Union County.
  • From time to time, the City of Union will use the media to keep everyone informed about all the good things COMMUNITY CHANGE is making possible.  That should make us all feel good!

 

  • City of Union utility customers are automatically included in COMMUNITY CHANGE to help the needy in Union County.  If you choose not to take part, or if you wish to stop participating at any time, just contact the utility billing office at City Hall at (864) 429-1717, or fill out the attached response form and return it with your bill to:  City of Union - Utility Billing, P.O. Box 987, Union, SC 29379.

 

  • COMMUNITY CHANGE gives us the power to help our neighbors when they are in need.  Together we can change things for the better.

Donations are automatic, tax deductible, and average only fifty cents per month.  There are almost ten thousand of us, and if all of us take part, more than fifty thousand dollars can be raised each year!  All for just two pennies a day!
