The Callaway County United Way is a vital organization to our community. Without the United Way many of the agencies would not exist or be able to do the good work that they do.

I have remained a donor to CCUW (in spite of the fact that I live in a neighboring community and only work in this county) since I first came to work here (more than 12 years ago).

The agencies served by CCUW truly need and appreciate the support they receive, and the community's network of non-profit organizations, educational institutions, etc. is phenomenal--a large part of that is CCUW.

As a business owner in this community we get asked to contribute to many nonprofit organizations. Our choice is the Callaway County United Way. When making a donation to the CCUW you are actually giving to 13 local agencies instead of just 1.

When I volunteer for or donate to a non-profit organization I choose the Callaway County United Way. By giving a gift or my time to this organization I am helping nearly 1/4 of the population in my community.

The CCUW has been doing great work in Callaway County for over 50 years. They are run by an expert all-volunteer board and continue to adapt and grow to meet the needs of the community. I have been a donor to this organization for a long time and will continue to be one because I know my donation is well taken care of and used where it is needed the most.

As a member of the community I’m impressed with the outstanding job that the Callaway County United Way does. In these hard economic times the United Way works with its member agencies to support those in need. The United Way, it agencies, board and volunteers work tirelessly to increase donations, search for new and innovative fundraising ideas, and make sure that the dollars pledged get to the people in need. I have attended their various fundraisers and the enthusiasm of the board and volunteers, makes me proud to know my dollars are working to better the lives of those in need, right here in our little Mid-Missouri community.



There are a few other questions about your experience and involvement.

I would just say your involvement has been just as a participant but you are ready to step up.



And where it asks how you participate – I would say by supporting fundraising activities in the community.



Thanks!

The United Way of Callaway County make such an immense difference in the lives of the community. As a student from a big city studying in Fulton you can actually see the fruits of the United Ways labor have a direct impact on the lives of the citizens of this town they don't just collect money they help out the entire community. Whether it is the Serve buses running to help people without cars get where they need to go, to campaigns to help lower medical costs at the pharmacy. The people involved with this organization selfishly do so much good and have such a profound impact on the community I live as a whole. It is quite amazing. The United Way of Callaway County helps everyone in such an immense way the town of Fulton would be lost without them providing the help and services they do.

Callaway County United Way has been a true asset in assisting low income - homebound elderly. CCUW helps provide adaptive medical equipment that allows low-income seniors to remain independent in their own homes. Items such as walkers and canes are loaned to the elderly on fixed-incomes helping them remain safe and avoid injury while living independently in their own homes.

Callaway County United Way's involvement and support means so much to our community. Their campaign dollars go directly to member agencies that support children, senior citizens, the homeless and hungry in our small community.

As a professional with more than 30 years in marketing and communications I can say, without hesitation, that the Callaway County United Way does an outstanding job of reaching out and truly making a huge difference in the lives of those living in the county. The board, staff and volunteers work tirelessly to promote their member agencies, steward donations and assess community needs. I am truly honored to be associated with such fine and dedicated people!

United Way of Callaway County does a wonderful job of helping 13 agencies provide programs and services to our community. Without funding from CCUW many people would not be able to participate in such programs. This organization is an asset to our community.
