As the Community Engagement Director at Westminster College, I am constantly striving to connect our campus volunteers with positive community agencies. CCUW is one of those agencies that provides so many services to our community and it stands as one of our campus volunteers' favorite and "go to" volunteeer programs. The fundraisers are fun for the volunteers and the volunteer opportunities offered to our students at their 13 different agencies are always fruitful and positive. Thank you CCUW for making my job easier and for providing so many services/programs to our community!

As a Program Director for SERVE, Inc.'s CALTRAN System (mass transit provider) we are so fortunate to have such a professionally structured local United Way that brings so much "to the table"..As we are located in a rural county -- our funding resources are not always easy to access and yet our mission is to continue to bring much needed direct services to our residents of Callaway County. I can't say enough how much the local director, Kathy R. Liddle, the entire Callaway County UW Board of Directors' AND the generosity of local businesses, individuals contribute in not only monetary gifts but their time and effort..SERVE, Inc.'s CALTRAN System's success has in part been due to the positive efforts of the UW fund drives and this has spanned over several decades!! Thanks to you it works for all of us..Regards, Patti Jo Peevy, SERVE CALTRAN Program Director, Fulton, Mo..

Callaway County United Way helps Serve Inc. Caltran, A transit system to receive Buses to transport people to their Apps. We transport Work shop People to work every Day. We transport the Seniors in our community to Drs. apps. Beauty Shop apps. Grocery Shopping and counseling app.Etc. They could not get to those places otherwise. Our Riders thank our Dispatchers and the drivers every day telling us that they would not be able to go anywhere without us because they don't have family that can do it for them. We could not transport them without United Ways Help.

As Director of an agency funded in part by the United Way, I am extremetly grateful to the CCUW for makng it possible to provide counseling services to low income residents who do not qualify for government-funded programs. I feel that the CCUW really enhances the visibility of the provider agencies through its public events such as Celebrity Waiter and the annual fall festival.

Callaway County United Way is an excellent organization making a significant difference in our county. I currently am the president of the board of Our House, Callaway County's only homeless shelter. If the United Way hadn't backed this organization with finances, skills and volunteers we would never have gotten the shelter open. As a result of their support we have continued to build support in the community and we have been able to help numerous Callaway County person's who have loss jobs and lost their place to live, subsequently find jobs, save enough money for a housing deposit and move into their own living situation. With increased financial support from the community we have increased our operating hours and during our recent blizzard and frigid temperatures we stayed open 24 hours a day for four days to provide safe haven for the homeless.

Callaway County United Way has been a true asset in assisting low income - homebound elderly. CCUW helps provide adaptive medical equipment that allows low-income seniors to remain independent in their own homes. Items such as walkers and canes are loaned to the elderly on fixed-incomes helping them remain safe and avoid injury while living independently in their own homes.
