Really a good organization and is felt throughout the entire county. My family enjoys the Christmas letters and breakfast with Santa and also going to the celebrity waiter dinner. We have been donors for many years and intend to continue.

I think the Callaway United Way is doing a great job in our community. I used them myself this Christmas when they were offering Santa Letters. It was a small donation required, but the joy it brought to my child's face when he got the letter made me wish I had donated more. I know the United Way works hard in our community and they really make a difference.

I served on the board for many years and for a small community the United Way of Callaway County has a HUGE impact. The number of volunteers and how many lives we can affect is impressive. I think the the Exec Dir and board have done a bang up job of helping a very diverse group of agencies and keeping charity alive in Central Missouri. I am proud to have served on the board and am proud to be a donor and make a difference in the life of someone who may be down on their luck and struggling.

I have been a donor to CCUW for as long as I have been a business man in Callaway County - over 35 years. I am very impressed with the help that is given by CCUW to many local organizations. The professional staff at CCUW does a great job at stretching their dollars to help as many of these groups in need as they can. We are very fortunate to have such helpful and caring people in our community.

I am a 4-H volunteer and my kids are 4-H members. CCUW helps fund the 4-H program. Through 4-H and their shooting sports program, my son has been able to participate in the tryouts for the state shooting teams and for the last few years he has been able to make those teams and go to the national competitions. These national competitions are a wonderful learning experience and they are something that my son will never forget in his lifetime!

In addition, my husband and I are instructors for the county. The money that the CCUW gives to the 4-H program helps us fund our program. In the last 3-4 years, our shooting sports program has grown from 15 members to 100+ members. We would not have the recources to support this many kids without them! That is why I am enthusiastic in my support of the CCUW and always encourage others to support them as well.

As a lifelong resident of Fulton and Callaway County, I have seen the Callaway County United Way touch the lives of so many people. In smaller counties like ours, the United Way has to take on a broader role to meet so many needs and fill the funding gaps that exist with many United Way agencies. Our Callaway County United Way always finds ways to be resourceful and effective in meeting these needs, an accomplishment that is not lost on donors like myself who have supported it for more than 30 years.

The Calloway County United Way helps its local community by supporting a number of services that benefit both body and mind, from literacy programs to discount prescription drugs to working with recycling programs.

Many of the services supported by the Calloway County United Way help people that would not be able to help themselves: the elderly, the homeless, victims of violence.

This group is a wonderful and necessary help for the people of Calloway County.

I donated money to the December Fundraiser and received a letter from Santa for my child. I wanted to help out regardless of what I would receive in return but this organization is truly special. I love their mission to support and uplift the community. The Santa letters were an excellent idea and more than just a form letter. Not only did we get to contribute to a good cause that we believe in, but my daughter received a personalized letter that made her feel important. This organization goes above and beyond in their contributions to the community.
