We thank each of you for your continued support throughout 2020. Despite all the curveballs 2020 threw at us, LINC was able to continuously support the Atlanta community when it needed us the most. We thank you for your commitment to volunteerism, education, developing the youth of our community, and to our community’s goal for economic stability.

As a membership, we achieved a lot this year. With your help, we contributed to United Way of Greater Atlanta’s success in raising $25 Million for the Greater Atlanta COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund, as well as $1 Million that has been raised for the United for Racial Equity and Healing Fund. We switched from gathering as young professionals in-person for happy hour to coming together at YPL’s and LINC’s virtual socials where I continue to see the creativity of our committees shine as they come up with new experiences and games to share with us. Over the summer, LINC and YPL put together 256 shoeboxes full of toiletries to be distributed to shelters around Atlanta, a benchmark we hope to surpass in 2021.

As the LINC Board, we’ve seen heightened engagement from you all as members. We’ve seen more friendly faces at committee meetings where your ideas have sparked new energy into our monthly planning. Thank you.

2021 will continue to bring us new challenges, but hopefully it will also bring some level of a return to normalcy. In February we will shift our focus to United Way’s Brighter Futures and in April, College & Career Readiness. We look forward to brining you all some awesome virtual events and volunteerism opportunities.

Thank you again from myself and the LINC Board. Happy holidays, and have a fantastic New Year,


Rose Reardon

2020-2021 LINC Atlanta Chair
