The Callaway County United Way is a vital organization to our community. Without the United Way many of the agencies would not exist or be able to do the good work that they do.

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

I know many people that have received services from the UW agencies. Sometimes people need a helping hand to get back on the right track or to help get over a bump in the road. It is wonderful that these services are available to those that need it in our community. This is possible because of United Way funding

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

I would not change a thing.

As a business owner in this community we get asked to contribute to many nonprofit organizations. Our choice is the Callaway County United Way. When making a donation to the CCUW you are actually giving to 13 local agencies instead of just 1.

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

United Way agencies make a difference for thousands of people in our community. Two of the most impressive initiatives are the FamilyWize prescription drug discount program and their sponsorship of the 2-1-1 statewide help-line.

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

Encourage all the small business owners in the community to give to the CCUW.

The United Way of Callaway County make such an immense difference in the lives of the community. As a student from a big city studying in Fulton you can actually see the fruits of the United Ways labor have a direct impact on the lives of the citizens of this town they don't just collect money they help out the entire community. Whether it is the Serve buses running to help people without cars get where they need to go, to campaigns to help lower medical costs at the pharmacy. The people involved with this organization selfishly do so much good and have such a profound impact on the community I live as a whole. It is quite amazing. The United Way of Callaway County helps everyone in such an immense way the town of Fulton would be lost without them providing the help and services they do.

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

participating at BBQs to raise money hearing all the stories about how the United Way helps all the various organizations.

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

Give them more funding to do more good.
