The United Way campaign is well under way and, so far, you are being generous. We are at 25.6% of goal which is $1,613,000. Ahead of this time last year. Remember, our UW funds 21 agencies and 55 programs in eight counties; They also awarded one-time grants this year to seven additional agencies struggling financially; and were the lead partner in 14 different community building initiatives. United Way is a wise investment into the quality of life in our community and the money stays here in our community; governed by local board that oversees o operations. Last year, UW impacted the lives of more than 150,000 people (or one out of two people in the Chattahoochee Valley) If you really want to make a difference in the community, become a United Way partner. You will help change lives for the better. We know that's what matters to you.
