The American Red Cross Callaway County chapter does so much for the community. As a volunteer I teach several cpr/aed courses and the Chapter office is always a big help. Without this office we would notbe able to help repare as many people as we do for emergency situations. In addition to that they provide such a needed service to the community during disaster situations. Please help them help others.

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

Provide this chapter offce with a facility that meets their needs.

I volunteer with a CCUW agency and have contributed to it specifically through payroll deduction from my state payroll check. I always select Callaway County agencies through the CCUW as I believe in the work it accomplishes through our donations.

Our local United Way is run by volunteers who live in Callaway County. They conduct the research, set strategic planning goals, run the community campaign, and make funding decisions. These volunteers review the United Way's monthly operations, serve on a variety of working committees, and the Board of Directors. The Callaway County's one paid staff person provides support and continuity.

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

The Callaway County United Way does most with the money collected during their annual campaign and has a very low overhead costs so the majority of contributions go to those in need within our community.

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

Nothing.
