I am a Red Cross Volunteer, and while not currently not actively involved in Disaster Services, I have work with members and agencies supported by the Callaway County United Way. Until you have done this type of work you may not have the comprehension of just how important the United Way is and how it helps the local community. Additionally, I am not sure the general public realizes the need that exists locally since larger more global issues generate most of the news. This is a very important and critical agency that provides extremely needed assistance to a vast number of people every year. I hope it can continue to thrive and be supported in the future!

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

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

I would make the United Way more transparent so that local businesses and individuals are aware that there donations stay inside Callaway County to help the community.

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 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 volunteer at the food pantry. At one time I found myself using the food pantry but once I was able to get back on my feet I started volunteering there.

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

Without United Way funding many of the agencies would not be able to provide the services that they provide. I feel that I owe my community the time that I put in at the food pantry. I help unload the trucks and stock the shelves.

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

None
