Rating: 5 stars  

Callaway County United Way Inc. is a charity that has helped many people of the community. It is a part of a large support network that helps those in need and brings this community together. Without the United Way as a part of the that network the network would not be nearly as effective in helping the people of Callaway County as it is now. They do a great job in outreach and communitication to make sure memebers of this county know exactly how they can be better neighbors to each other. And that is an invaluable skill.

By seeing how so many people are helped. Attending events and meetings. Reading the website.

Give them lots of money to help. It's hard in this economy to help everyone, and it would be nice if I could help make it easier for them.
