United Way of the Cape Fear Area has launched a new initiative to connect retirees to impactful community engagement opportunities.
United Way of the Cape Fear Area (UWCFA) area has launched its newest engaging initiative focused on local retirees. Retire United is a platform designed to encourage community engagement for retirees, soon-to-be retirees and seniors dedicated to sharing their wisdom, expertise and talents with the community. The program encourages engagement through board of director involvement, volunteerism, financial support and other opportunities.
The greater Cape Fear region in recent years has seen a significant influx of new residents, consisting of retirees as well as those who are still in the workforce. Many of these newcomers have chosen to stay involved in philanthropic efforts through volunteerism and/or financial support, yet, other new residents may not have had the time or opportunity to be engaged in community support, or the vehicles to do so were not made known to them.
United Way of the Cape Fear Area is aware that many retirees and seniors have time, expertise and the desire to meaningfully connect, create and contribute in their community. UWCFA believes that with a structured program, retirees can have the opportunity to expand their community involvement, participate in volunteer opportunities, join in social events, provide financial support and enhance the value of their lives in retirement.
The goal of Retire United is to expand participation of retirees moving into the greater Cape Fear region and current retirees within the region by connecting them to impactful nonprofit volunteerism and financial support for the benefit of both the retirees and the community.
United Way of the Cape Fear Area is dedicated to connecting individuals to reliable, needed resources. Retire United will advance the United Way of the Cape Fear Area’s mission of working with the community to leverage resources and improve the lives of local people.
United Way of the Cape Fear Area mobilizes resources to empower local people working toward leading self-sufficient, healthy lives.
