When you partner with the United Way, you're assured of making the greatest impact possible. Through your gift, more children achieve success in school, more seniors are able to stay in their own homes, and more of the most vulnerable citizens receive the support they need to live productive, self-sufficient lives. United Way provides leadership, accountability and a focus on results. A United Way contribution is invested carefully in proven programs that work. Knowledgeable volunteers regularly review and evaluate United Way and the United Way supported programs to ensure financial integrity and effectiveness.

My United Way investment, magnified by the investments of others, has the power to bring about changes that matter in the community. When I contribute, I can help more than one person or one charity. The United Way is the collective power of caring people working together toward community solutions.

The United Way provides the necessary link between people who care and the agencies that offer the assistance. Together we can help supply the financial aid needed by agencies striving to meet the needs of many people.

Ever since we were young, we've been asked the hypothetical question, "What would you do with a million dollars?" (or something similar to that), and just because it sounded admirable, we would answer, "Give some to charity." 'When the list of charities in our community is presented to us, it can be complicated to keep up with what charity serves what purpose. However, if we donate to the United Way we are giving to 13 local charities at once.

The Callaway County United Way assures the availability of an entire network of human services. For example: A homeless family needs a roof over its head and food and clothing. If you give directly to your favorite agency, you can make this happen. But what if this family also needs day care, and counseling to leave the shelter? No one agency can do all this. United Way makes sure all these services are available from the temporary bed to the long-term solution.

I moved from Callaway County about 12 years ago. Each year I request that my donation made through payroll deduction be directed back to the Callaway County United Way.

Every dollar donated to Callaway County United Way is a dollar well spent. Our family donates because of the positive impact all of the agencies and initiatives supported by CCUW have to the health and well being of the people of our county; all people, every age group is on the receiving end of its funding efforts. I have referred people in crisis to Our House, SERVE, CARDV, the dental initiative, 2-1-1, the Red Cross and know of the benefits they have gotten from those efforts and agencies. A decade ago we often transported residents in need across county lines for services. Agencies like the YMCA and senior center focus on maintaining the well being of county residents, which is equally important. There isn't a wasted dollar; the annual campaigns help all of us to focus beyond our own lives and jobs to the good of the county as a whole.
