ALICE Awareness Week: Janet gives up orange AND espresso!

4 November 2019

We were in the studio for a conversation with Jennifer Hall from Valley Assistance Network (VAN), a program of United Way of Northern Shenandoah Valley. We talked about ALICE (Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed) Awareness week that kicks off on Monday, November 4, 2019 and how the community can get involved from an educational perspective as well as donating to the cause. Jennifer told us about various ALICE challenges and I agreed to also participate. You can see the details on my Facebook fundraiser page here: https://www.facebook.com/donate/3267458366630127/

We also talked about the services and successes of Valley Assistance Network and the upcoming Poverty Simulation happening on Friday, November 8, 2019. You can download that flyer here: Poverty Simulation Flyer 2019 or get more information here: https://www.unitedwaynsv.org/povertysim




All of the money raised during ALICE Awareness Week helps United Way to reach campaign goal, but also goes to support emergency ALICE programs through Valley Assistance Network. What kind of support? Doing things like getting families out of their cars during the coldest months of the year, helping a breadwinner get to work with gas cards, and getting a family into their own home. All of these amazing things take money to make happen.
