Holiday Notes of Encouragement

Save to Favorites

United Way of Greater Cincinnati


During the COVID-19 pandemic, the holidays can be especially isolating for older adults who can’t engage in everyday activities that help them stay connected to their friends, family, and the community. Beginning today through December 16, we will collect Holiday Notes of Encouragement to bring cheer to older adults in our community.

Invite a friend, family member or coworker to join you in creating Holiday Notes of Encouragement!

Please use the following guidelines to create your notes:

  • Since the notes will go to people who practice many different faiths, keep the wording general and use holiday expressions such as "Season’s Greetings," "Happy Holidays," or "Happy New Year."
  • Holiday greeting cards are fine to use but please also include a personal note.
  • Mail or deliver completed notes to United Way of Greater Cincinnati, Holiday Notes of Encouragement, 2400 Reading Road, Cincinnati, OH 45202 by 4:30 p.m. December 16 so they can be distributed before the end of the year.
  • This is a great activity for the whole family!

Mission Statement

United Way is a leader and community catalyst mobilizing the caring power of individuals and organizations to help people measurably improve their lives.


United Way works every day to advance the common good by focusing on the building blocks for a better life - education, income, and health. We concentrate on these critical issues in order to improve lives and strengthen our communities, and ultimately, to make our region the best it can be.

United Way of Greater Cincinnati was founded in 1915. The annual fundraising campaign became a partnership with American Red Cross, Cincinnati Area Chapter, in 1956. Today the organization covers ten counties: Hamilton, Brown, Butler and Clermont in Ohio; Boone, Campbell, Grant, and Kenton in Northern Kentucky; and Dearborn and Ohio counties in Southeast Indiana.
