When I think of all the needs in the area, and how I want to help as much as I can, I get overwhelmed. But I know that I do make a difference by Living United and giving to the Callaway County United Way.

I make a pledge to the United Way for several reason. First, I know that my contribution will be used in the best way possible to help people in the community. Second, I know that the United Way does not have a large administrative cost and the majority of my donation will go to the agencies and inturn help those in need.

Serve's adopt-a-family program is great for our community! There are many families that can hardly manage from month to month with their basic expenses muchless give their children anything extra for Christmas. The good citizens of our community dig deep to help others during the holiday season.

I love that the United Way holds penny drives at the schools. It teaches the kids to give back to the community at a very young age.

The Radiothon is the annual kickoff for our local United Way. It is a great event with a lot of activities and a great fundraiser for the organization.

I have called the United Way office several times over the past year to inquire about services. The Director is always friendly and helpful.

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!
