My family has used United Way services. Not many realize they too have used services provided by a United Way agency. My kids have been in 4-H, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Home delivered meals for my grandmother and the SERVE bus takes her to do her shopping. And, the Red Cross contacted my cousin while he was overseas.

The United Way touches all of our lives at some time.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None at this time.

Donating to the United Way is the best way to support your community. With 1 donation I am able to help fund 13 local agencies at once.

This org has made a huge difference in its community. The people working there are clearly highly committed and competent and I trust no other org with my donation dollars. When i want my money to matter to someone, I entrust it to CCUW.

I see what this org does in Callaway County and its impact is obvious.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would work harder to ensure it is adequately funded!

I served on the Callaway County United Way board for many years. I enjoyed my time working with a diverse group of professionals and helping the community by raising much needed funds for the agencies.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The Callaway County United Way is a great organization. I have been on a lot of boards and belonged to a lot of organizations but the CCUW sets goals, works hard and gets the job done.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

One of the best services the United Way has provided the community is 2-1-1. We are lucky to have a strong United Way.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I refer clients to 2-1-1 frequently. It is a wonderful service that directs clients to the correct agency that can assist them. 2-1-1 is also a clearinghouse for volunteer services.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Giving and helping people is what it is all about. And the United Way does just that.

I donated to the United Way through my company campaign. Each year the United Way gives a presentation to explain how the funds raised will be used. I am glad I am able to help the United Way and my community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

nope

I am a volunteer. My favorite United Way event is the Celebrity Waiter Banquet. I really enjoy working with the United Way board members and the general public to help raise funds.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Raising money is what the United Way is all about. Without the United Way there would be a lot more people in need of assistance. Funds raised help so many and I am glad I can help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Just raise more money!

I have been the penny drive coordinator for our school for several years now. This is a great project for the kids and a wonderful fundraiser for the United Way.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The penny drives teach the kids to give back to the community which is something that has been lost over the years. Because of the United Way our youth are going to grow up to be more caring adults.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

great job! No changes needed.

I stayed at HAVEN House for about 12 weeks with my children. The staff there was so helpful to help me find a job, work on my debt issues, helped me find daycare and eventually a place of our own.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am very thankful to the United Way. The Director at HAVEN House tells me that without United Way money they would not be able to keep their doors open.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

no changes!!
