United Way Launches New Organization for Retirees

The Tulsa Area United Way has announced the launch of a new organization for retirees who want to remain active in their community.

Retire United was officially launched at the United Way’s annual Day of Caring on Friday, Sept. 6.

“Our major goal is to keep retirees engaged in their community,” said Ted Haynes, chair of the Retire United planning committee and former President and CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma. “Many retirees supported their local United Way during their careers and we want to keep them involved.”

Retire United will join other United Way organizations including Women United, Emerging Leaders Society and Small Business United.

“In addition to community service projects, our members will benefit from life enrichment activities such as financial planning, health and safety initiatives and other topics of particular interest to seniors,” Haynes said.

Inaugural members of Retire United recently gathered to participate in a Day of Caring project. Other events and activities for retirees will be offered throughout the year, said Heidi Braver, Director of Volunteer Experience at the Tulsa Area United Way.

“This segment of the population has so much expertise and wisdom to share with their community,” Braver said. “We want to harness that energy and enrich their lives, as well as those we serve, and keep them in the fold of the United Way family.”
