The Callaway County United Way has a tremendous impact on the residents of our community. The funding generated from this organization serves various age groups addressing a variety of social, developmental and life needs. I am impressed with the committment the CCUW has generated from individuals who volunteer, serve on their board and those who give generously each year, including many businesses. This support would not be present if the organization was not efficient.

In my capacity in the community, I have worked with several social service organizations that are able to provide, and continue to provide, necessary programs due to CCUW funding. I am also a parent of children who have participated in 4H and who have benefitted greatly from these experiences.

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

I would request better publicity of fund-raising events in the community. Perhaps I have missed the local paper on the day an event is being advertised, but I have "stumbled" upon some with no prior knowledge. Also, I would suggest collaboration with the local college and university as well as service clubs in the Fulton Public School district to elicit help for campaigns.
