I am now retired, but have worked for Callaway Social service agencies for about 20 years...now a volunteer. I am so proud of Callaway United Way and all the board and directors do to support local causes. The generosity of the citizens and the enormous effort the volunteers put into the programs brings a tremendous benefit to all who are served. We are a large rural county, with a small population as compared to many....but do a fantastic job serving those in need. Thanks to CCUW!!!

I taught swimming and served as a life guard for the Red Cross in Callaway County in the early 60's and now my grandchildren are taking Red Cross swimming lessons. I am proud of the number of children and adults in Callaway that know how to swim. Some of my former students still swim and they are in their 80's. Nancy McCue

The Red Cross in Callaway County does incredible work and is an integral part of the make-up of the community. They provide assistance with single family fires with food, clothing and sheltering and planning to help disaster families get back on the road to recovery.
For many years, they have helped the community be prepared and educated for fires, ice storms, winter weather, floods and other disasters. They teach classes in CPR,First Aid and AED's, train the community with swim lessons and life guarding, pet first aid and baby sitting. They also support the military community with military messaging and loans.
Without the generous support of the United Way, the Red Cross in Callaway County could not continue to provide the high quality services and support the community at the current level.

I have worked with the American Red Cross and this community without the United Way many people could not get the assistance they need to survive. They are truly an asset to Callaway County.

As an employee of the American Red Cross, I see on a regular basis what the United Way does to help people prepare for and respond to emergencies/disasters. Without the funding assistance of the United Way, the resources would not be available to help people when they are at their most vulnerable.

It takes all of us, working together, to make real changes. An investment in the Callaway County United Way will make that happen. Together we can accomplish more than any single group can do on its own.

I have worked with non profit organizations for many years and can say, without a doubt, the Callaway County United Way is one of the best run organizations I've ever seen. They are well organized and concientious and money is well spent

I would like to thank the Callaway County United Way, the Missouri Foundation for Health and other United Way's that sponsor the 2-1-1 program. It is a valuable service to our community and state.

Zimmer Radio Group has sponsored the Callaway County United Way Radio-thon for 11 years now. The event started out as a community awareness project and has evolved into the annual kick-off for our local United Way. The event has grown and grown each year to now include a car show, BBQ, online auction, agency/client interviews, and much more.

We all have special talents. Things we can do to help. And when we reach out a hand to one, WE INFLUENCE THE CONDITION OF ALL. Whether it’s reading to children, stocking shelves in the food pantry, or delivering meals to home bound seniors, there are hundreds of volunteer options available every day and the Callaway County United Way and their agencies provide volunteer services to our community.

Business owners are asked to donate to charities every day. When planning our charitable budget each year the non-profit organization that is always top of the list if the United Way. You don't give to the United Way you give through the United Way. One gift helps so many people and so many organizations.

The Callaway County United Way has been around for over 50 years. It is a strong organization which helps nearly 1/4th the population in our small community each year.

I have seen how their various fundraising events promote community awareness as well as envoke compassion from people of all ages-from the penny drives in the elementary schools to the classic car shows, CCUW positively impacts many, through their giving & their soliciting.

Without the United Way, our organization could not provide much-needed services to the community. We actively support the United Way through assisting in various fundraisers.

CCUW touches the lives of citizens of Callaway County every day. They assure that our community has the resources to provide exceptional emergency care. I have benefitted from the outstanding first aid and CPR training they support through the American Red Cross. Thanks for caring CCUW!
