Review from Guidestar
My United Way investment, magnified by the investments of others, has the power to bring about changes that matter in the community. When I contribute, I can help more than one person or one charity. The United Way is the collective power of caring people working together toward community solutions.
Many of us living in Callaway County are fortunate. We are a part of a wonderful community but yet, we know we can make it better.
My gift of time and money to the Callaway County United Way will impact the lives of those around me. We can all make a difference by contributing to the local United Way.

Review from Guidestar
Ever since we were young, we've been asked the hypothetical question, "What would you do with a million dollars?" (or something similar to that), and just because it sounded admirable, we would answer, "Give some to charity." 'When the list of charities in our community is presented to us, it can be complicated to keep up with what charity serves what purpose. However, if we donate to the United Way we are giving to 13 local charities at once.
The Callaway County United Way assures the availability of an entire network of human services. For example: A homeless family needs a roof over its head and food and clothing. If you give directly to your favorite agency, you can make this happen. But what if this family also needs day care, and counseling to leave the shelter? No one agency can do all this. United Way makes sure all these services are available from the temporary bed to the long-term solution.
