The L. Vincent Lowe, Jr. Leadership Circle

The story of the Giving Tree is about a little boy who played in the shade of the tree, and when hungry, the tree gave him an apple. In later years, the boy wanted a home, so the tree gave him his branches. As a young man, he wanted a boat and the tree gave him his trunk. Each time the tree gave, it made him feel good and he was happy. Many years later, the old man came back to the tree stump and the tree said, “I have nothing more to give.” The old man replied, “I only want a place to rest.” So the Giving Tree said, “Come and sit on me,” and the man did. Again, they were both happy – the tree who continued to be needed and the man with happy memories and peace of mind. 

The L. Vincent Lowe, Jr. Leadership Circle was named in memory of an outstanding citizen in Wilson County, Mr. Lowe exemplified the true meaning of “helping others to help themselves”. Through his volunteerism with the United Way of Wilson County, a difference was made in the lives of Wilson County citizens. 

Wilson is the “City of Trees”, therefore the symbol of the “Giving Tree” was adopted to stand for the generosity of those extraordinary members of the L. Vincent Lowe, Jr. Leadership Circle

Join with these caring individuals to help give food, security, peace of mind, and much more to the many citizens who need United Way agencies. You too will feel good about all that your gift makes possible.
