One of the reasons I chose to work for Timken was because this company emphasizes the importance of positively impacting the community around us. The United Way is an organization with the same mission -- to help people in their local community. To me, supporting the United Way is an exceptional way to reach out to those in need. Some people need a boost to get themselves out of a bad situation, some need guidance on how to handle an event in their life and others need help overcoming enormous challenges that strike unexpectedly.
I have been lucky enough to have not needed to lean on the United Way yet in my life, but I believe that every person knows someone who has received help from the United Way in some way, shape or form, even if we don't know it. It is amazing that so many services can be provided to our community through the support of those around us. The United Way shows just how incredible we can be, and what a difference we can make, when we come together to LIVE UNITED.
