Last year was the first I gave to the Callaway County United Way and I'm sure glad I did. I know that they support 13 agencies in my community that provide food, shelter, healthcare and more for people in need.

The Callaway County United Way makes an exceptional difference in our community. The directors, volunteers, and members all strive to to give a better quality of life for all the people of Callaway County. They are always planning and campaigning to bring in more resources for our people. I once served as a volunteer for a United Way commercial. It was a positive and fulfilling experience.

Other than collect more money - no.

You may believe that United Way services are designed for people living in poverty. The truth is one in four people in Callaway County will benefit from a United Way funded agency this year. It may be the co-worker sitting beside you, it may be your friend, your neighbor, your family member, or one day, it might be you. The United Way provides valuable services for everyone in our community.

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

Everyone knows someone that has benefited from a United Way agency service or program at some time in their lives.

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

Just more money.
