From the Director

Dear Members –

I was taught that, regardless of how much money you have, giving back to your community is an obligation. That’s one of the reasons why I am proud to have the privilege to serve as president of the Broken Arrow Senior Center – in the community where I live, work and play.

Marian Wright Edelman said that “Service is the rent we pay for being. It is the very purpose of life, and not something you do in your spare time.”

That’s also why it is important for me to support the Tulsa Area United Way (TAUW). By giving to the TAUW, you can help provide assistance to people in need when they need it most. And much like the BA Senior Center, the TAUW provides our community with services and programs that are needed to improve the quality of life for others.

More than 60 percent of all financial support to the TAUW comes from individuals like you and me. And when you support the BA Senior Center’s UW campaign, the funds you donate are reinvested right back here through the TAUW’s financial support to the BA Senior Center.

We raise money through the bake sale, silent auction and the staff lends their support through payroll deduction. With one week left in the campaign we are well on our way to not only meeting but exceeding our $5,000 goal.

It takes all of us working together to make this community healthier, safer and stronger, and we’re determined to do our part through this year’s fundraising campaign. Thank you for your continued support.

Sean Simpson
