“We really want the community to know that it’s a new day at the Way. We have new energy. We have a new executive director. The board is on board. We’re excited about this campaign and just looking forward to garnering your support and helping our community one step at a time," said Miller.

Miller said they want to connect all the parts of the community by sharing assets, money, and resources among groups to support a stronger community.

They shared that they have a fundraiser coming up in October, but they accept donations every day.
