I am a Red Cross Volunteer, and while not currently not actively involved in Disaster Services, I have work with members and agencies supported by the Callaway County United Way. Until you have done this type of work you may not have the comprehension of just how important the United Way is and how it helps the local community. Additionally, I am not sure the general public realizes the need that exists locally since larger more global issues generate most of the news. This is a very important and critical agency that provides extremely needed assistance to a vast number of people every year. I hope it can continue to thrive and be supported in the future!

This org has made a huge difference in its community. The people working there are clearly highly committed and competent and I trust no other org with my donation dollars. When i want my money to matter to someone, I entrust it to CCUW.

I am a volunteer. My favorite United Way event is the Celebrity Waiter Banquet. I really enjoy working with the United Way board members and the general public to help raise funds.

I volunteer at the food pantry. At one time I found myself using the food pantry but once I was able to get back on my feet I started volunteering there.

I see the good that Callaway County United Way does in the community with the scouts, CARDV, Serve and Our House. This is important for Fulton and Callaway County, Missouri.

The American Red Cross Callaway County chapter does so much for the community. As a volunteer I teach several cpr/aed courses and the Chapter office is always a big help. Without this office we would notbe able to help repare as many people as we do for emergency situations. In addition to that they provide such a needed service to the community during disaster situations. Please help them help others.

I volunteer with a CCUW agency and have contributed to it specifically through payroll deduction from my state payroll check. I always select Callaway County agencies through the CCUW as I believe in the work it accomplishes through our donations.

Giving to the Callaway County United Way is my way of giving back to the community that we have had the privilege of living in for over 50 years. The United Way is the best way to give to organizations that meet the social needs of our community.

Our local United Way is run by volunteers who live in Callaway County. They conduct the research, set strategic planning goals, run the community campaign, and make funding decisions. These volunteers review the United Way's monthly operations, serve on a variety of working committees, and the Board of Directors. The Callaway County's one paid staff person provides support and continuity.
