I am now retired, but have worked for Callaway Social service agencies for about 20 years...now a volunteer. I am so proud of Callaway United Way and all the board and directors do to support local causes. The generosity of the citizens and the enormous effort the volunteers put into the programs brings a tremendous benefit to all who are served. We are a large rural county, with a small population as compared to many....but do a fantastic job serving those in need. Thanks to CCUW!!!

I taught swimming and served as a life guard for the Red Cross in Callaway County in the early 60's and now my grandchildren are taking Red Cross swimming lessons. I am proud of the number of children and adults in Callaway that know how to swim. Some of my former students still swim and they are in their 80's. Nancy McCue

The Red Cross in Callaway County does incredible work and is an integral part of the make-up of the community. They provide assistance with single family fires with food, clothing and sheltering and planning to help disaster families get back on the road to recovery.
For many years, they have
helped the community be prepared and educated for fires, ice storms, winter weather, floods and other disasters. They teach classes in CPR,First Aid and AED's, train the community with swim lessons and life guarding, pet first aid and baby sitting. They also support the military community with military messaging and loans.
Without the generous support of the United Way, the Red Cross in Callaway County could not continue to provide the high quality services and support the community at the current level.

I work with this organization and my experiences are with the clients we serve on a daily basis and the dedicated volunteers that keep us running and enable us to put 91 cents of every dollar we raise back into the services we provide.

I wouldn't make any changes. We continue to do outreach to help provide financial support everyday. To fulfill our mission we rely on the generous donations of the public, foundations, corporations and the United Way.

As an employee of the American Red Cross, I see on a regular basis what the United Way does to help people prepare for and respond to emergencies/disasters. Without the funding assistance of the United Way, the resources would not be available to help people when they are at their most vulnerable.

Keeping track of records so duplication of services is not provided to one person to the detriment of another.

It takes all of us, working together, to make real changes. An investment in the Callaway County United Way will make that happen. Together we can accomplish more than any single group can do on its own.

I have worked with non profit organizations for many years and can say, without a doubt, the Callaway County United Way is one of the best run organizations I've ever seen. They are well organized and concientious and money is well spent
