Every dollar donated to Callaway County United Way is a dollar well spent. Our family donates because of the positive impact all of the agencies and initiatives supported by CCUW have to the health and well being of the people of our county; all people, every age group is on the receiving end of its funding efforts. I have referred people in crisis to Our House, SERVE, CARDV, the dental initiative, 2-1-1, the Red Cross and know of the benefits they have gotten from those efforts and agencies. A decade ago we often transported residents in need across county lines for services. Agencies like the YMCA and senior center focus on maintaining the well being of county residents, which is equally important. There isn't a wasted dollar; the annual campaigns help all of us to focus beyond our own lives and jobs to the good of the county as a whole.

This is an excellent organization and a great way to give to a large variety of local causes. I have made a gift every year for the past 27 years because I know the vast majority will go directly to local agencies.

The CCUW began in 1957, and funded a little over $19,000 to nine agencies during its first year. Over the years the mission of the organization stayed the same and the increased support of the community grew. Last year the goal for the CCUW was $260,00 and 13 agencies will be funded during 2011.

My parents were strong supporters of the United Way and I grew up believing in the United Way, their agencies and the work they do for the community. I instil the same beliefs in my children. The penny drives are a wonderful program to teach the children of our community to give back.

The Callaway County United Way is amazing for a small United Way. Most smaller United Way's do not have a web presence. Most do not support community impact initiatives. Most smaller United Ways are only around during campaign time. Not the CCUW!

The Callaway County United Way serves so many people in its hard to sing their praises in a few words. What would our community be without the services of the Red Cross, Senior Center, CARDV, Kindgom Projects, Serve, Our House, Scouts, 4-H and the YMCA? These entities are the heart of our community; they provide life changing experiences for their participants. I can't imagine what Callaway County would be like without these programs. We are blessed and fortunate to have the opportunity for personal growth through them. Thank you United Way, keep up the good work. You are making Callaway County a better place to live.

What would this community be without the United Way? Many individuals would not receive services provided by the UW agencies. It would be a shame. The agencies need United Way funding to exist.

Callaway United Way is a valuable part of our community. It provides a framework for citizens to help citizens, some face-to-face, some through service work with organizations, and some through monetary donations. All citizens who give to and receive from the United Way benefit from their interactions with this well-organized and well-run agency.

I have been involved with Callaway County United Way for "several" years. Beginning as a staff member of one of our agencies. The organization and dedication of all involved (board, volunteers and agencies) has always impressed me. Everyone pulling together to make things happen for the good and betterment of the communities in Callaway County. There are so many "neighbors" in need of the services offered by the agencies, all the way from preventative to emergency assistance. I feel CCUW, as a whole, acts as a great steward of the funding raised for our organizations.
