When I was asked to serve as a board member for the Callaway County United Way, I was humbled and felt very fortunate to be able to do so. My life story is not a rags to riches drama, but there were times I needed financial assistance and utilized many of the services offered by the United Way. As I have matured and started making better decisions for myself and my family, our financial status has improved. How awesome that I can now give back to a program that I use to receive benefits from. I take being a board member very serious. I know the importance a donated scout scholarship can make to a struggling family. I realize what it means to have your utility bill paid during the coldest month of the winter. I know what a bag of groceries mean to a family in need. The Callaway County United Way funds 14 agencies that touch so many lives. The amount of research, care, planning and hard work is not measurable. Our Executive Director, hundreds of volunteers, agencies and their employees and volunteers are so important to our community. They are true representatives of the heart of Mid-Missouri.
