Thirteen agencies are funded by the Callaway County United Way. Agencies such as youth services like Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and 4-H. Emergency needs like SERVE and Wiley House. Services for the elderly through the Senior Center and many more.

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

The United Way's motto is to Live United - Underneath everything we are, underneath everything we do, we are all people. Connected. Interdependent. United. And when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. That's what it means to Live United.

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

just raise more money so the agencies can do even more good.

When my kids were in school, we collected pennies for the Penny Drive. It was inspiring to turn them in during the Radiothon and hear how people were helped by the donations.

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

My kids and I were moved to tears by how what little we were doing made such a big difference. Now that they are grown, I send in a check when I can, and try to help by doing things like this. So many people need help these days.

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

Make sure everyone gave them money to help others. Every little bit helps!
