I have been on the board of the CCUW for roughly 3 years now and have donated to this organization through my company's employee campaign for as long as I can remember. The need for aid is definitely rising method is simple. Give to one and help many!

This is an amazing organization whose sole mission is to help others within the communities in which we live.

CCUW is an amazing organization that serves the needs of residents of Callaway County. I joined the United Way board during my sophomore and i immediately feel in love with its objectives. The CCUW partnered with the Westminster College Service Corps to organize the 1st community health which provide free health services to residents of Fulton. We have served over 200 people since we began this program. The United Way continues to provide funding to organizations in the County that provided essential services to the communtiy. I LOVE CCUW AND SO SHOULD YOU!!!!

I have lived in Callaway County for 17 years. During all those years I have encouraged members of our church to contribute to various agencies supported by our United Way. For 16 of those years I have been a volunteer with SERVE, particularly with the Adopt-A-Family program before Christmas. For the past 6 years I have served on the SERVE board of directors, now in my second year as Chairman, also having served on the Property committee. I am constantly amazed at the dedication of staff and volunteers of this and other UW agencies, and at how much is accomplished with limited funds. But the need in our community is always greater than our resources, so we constantly strive to encourage more donations.

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

Seeing the joy of those receiving the Adopt-A-Family gifts and the joy of those making the donations.

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

encourage more people to get involved in volunteering and/or making donations to help others in need.

This not for profit organization touches the most people in the Fulton and Callaway County community. I have worked as a volunteer and board member for many years for this organization. The United Way takes donations from our community and reinvests them directly into the community where they are needed the most. Everyone has a need at some point in their life for services provided by one of these organizations that are funded with these local donations. These organizations funded by the Callaway County United Way are the backbone of community service in our community.

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

working on their many local fundraisers.

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

hope that more local businesses and individuals would become involved in supporting this organization with donations of time and money to support the not for profit organizations funded by the Callaway County United Way.

CCUW serves a number of agencies within our community. I see the direct benefits through a number of agencies and organizations I am affiliated with. Without the financial support and advocating this United Way provides, many fine organizations would suffer both financial loses but also fail at meeting our community needs. I am proud of the fine work that CCUW does in our county.

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

I see a number of positive benefits through my students. My students are involved in various organizations the CCUW supports. The life long and leadership skills students gain is invaluable.

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

None that I can think of at this time.

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