Hutchinson County United Way

2020 Annual Report

            2020 was a very hard year for our community, yet our community still chose to be generous.  Although COVID-19 caused our agencies heartache, it also allowed our agencies to shine in the darkness, to show just how well they can assist people in times of hardships.   

            Hutchinson County United Way raised $663,819.70 in pledges for the 2019/20 Campaign year; $639,132.31 has been received as of March 8, 2020.  March 31, 2020 will mark the close of this campaign cycle.

            With these funds, we have done our best to meet the needs of our 16 Program Providers.  With COVID restrictions coming into place in March of 2020, Day of Caring was cancelled.  Although we were not able to hold our Back to School Fair Event for Borger ISD, PSP-CISD, S-Fritch ISD and Pringle Morse ISD, we were still able to provide school supplies as needed.  Approximately 1260 students were provided with backpacks from this project.  S-Fritch ISD students also benefitted with help paying for concurrent classes from our fundraising efforts. A grant was received from United Ways of Texas allowing us to encourage people to fill in their Census 2020 information.

            This year's funding was distributed to 16 Program Providers and our Back to School Fair.  Designated funds from our donors are respected and given though they are not encouraged.  Disbursements for 2020 were as follows:

2020-21 Campaign

 

            With COVID-19 invading our community, campaign was a challenge this year.   Our companies and businesses had to take lead in raising funds as no outside people were allowed into the majority of our workplaces.  Even with the difficulties we faced in our fundraising efforts, this community graciously gave $650,046 to Hutchinson County United Way. These funds will be used to continue changing the lives of many in our community.  Hutchinson County truly is the best place to live and work.  Thank you to our donors for your continued support to our county.  Thank you! Contributions came from 25 workplaces rallies, 34 businesses, 19 individuals, one civic organization from within our community and our two fundraisers: Car Show and Golf Scrambles.   HCUW was also the recipient of 2 area grants and one grant from the United Ways of Texas.

 

United Way is all about community.  Neighbor helping Neighbor.  Strengthening families.  Success at Graduation.  Caring.   Hutchinson County residents understand community, understand United Way.  Thank you all for your hard work and continued support.  Looking forward to what this next year holds for our Community!

 


Hutchinson County United Way

2019 Annual Report

            2019 was a very successful year for Hutchinson County United Way.  It was one of our largest campaigns to date and with that we were able to provide some extra services to our community.   

            Hutchinson County United Way raised $773,244.75 in pledges for the 2018/19 Campaign year; $766,323.04 has been received as of March 2, 2020.  March 31, 2020 will mark the close of this campaign cycle.

            With these funds, we were able to continue to meet the needs of our 15 Program Providers, help the elderly and disabled through our Day of Caring, and continue our partnership with our local school districts.  We were able to hold our Back to School Fair for Borger ISD, PSP-CISD, S-Fritch ISD and Pringle Morse ISD.  Spring Creek ISD did not partner with us this year as they were able to provide school supplies to all their students.  Approximately 1,350 students were provided with backpacks from this project.  In addition to school supplies, the BTSF provided hygiene products, haircuts, athletic physicals, dental screening, ID Kits, shoes, clothing, anything that might ease the burden of expense that comes with the start of school.  This was a very successful day in our community.  With the rise of mental health issues in the community, a Mental Health Task Force has been created with involvement from our Schools, Judicial System, the Hospital and Texas Panhandle Centers.  Marc Mero came and spoke to 3 School Districts concerning mental health and suicide. Last but not least, S-Fritch ISD students also benefitted with help  paying for concurrent classes from our fundraising efforts.

            This year's funding was distributed to 15 Program Providers and three other Non-Profit Organizations in our county.  Funding also supported two of our own initiatives; Day of Caring and the Back to School Fair.  Designated funds from our donors are respected and given though they are not encouraged.  Disbursements for 2019 were as follows:

Donations will be received until March 31, 2016 when the campaign cycle closes. This campaign year was slightly down due to the drop in our oilfield economy.

                With these funds, we were able to continue to meet the needs of our 16 Partner Agencies, help the elderly and disabled through our Day of Caring, as well as partner in new ways with our local school districts. In August, we held a Back to School Fair for Borger ISD. Approximately 600 students attended our event. We were able to provide school supplies, hygiene products, haircuts, athletic physicals, dental screening, ID Kits, shoes, clothing, anything else that might ease the burden of expense that comes with the start of school. Board Member Theron Baker and Executive Director Julie Winters attended the following school board meeting. One of the principals stated that this year was the easiest school starts he had seen. He attributed the Back to School Fair as one of the reasons for this ease in the first week of school. Even though Fritch and Stinnett were not able to provide the Fair for their communities, we provided school supplies to those students who needed them.

                S-Fritch ISD also took advantage of our partnership in helping with tuition for concurrent classes. The more college credits our high school students take, the more likely they will be to acquire a college education which should allow them to earn a living wage salary.

                This year’s funding was distributed to 16 Program Providers, four other Non-Profit Organizations in our county, and designations to one other United Way in the area. Part of our funding also went towards our new Education Initiative. Designated funds from our donors are respected and given though they are not encouraged. Disbursements for 2016 were as follows:

We raise $761,080. Thank you to the generous donors of Hutchinson County. Contributions came from 30 workplace rallies, 41 businesses and 30 individuals from within our community.

                Our Kick Off Cook Off was held on September 17, 2016.

Nineteen cook teams entered four categories: Ribs, Brisket, Pork Butt & other. The event was held from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and had around 550 attendees. Guests enjoyed delicious B-B-Q while learning about the services provided by our Partner Agencies. Everyone enjoyed the day.

                This year’s Day of Caring was held on April 30, 2016. There were 175 adult volunteers & 175 Borger High School Students that helped in 53 homes of our elderly and disabled. They did yard work, tree trimming, painting, and small repairs. It was a very rainy Saturday, so many volunteers chose to complete the project on the following weekend.

                Can’t wait to see what this year holds for Hutchinson County United Way!

 


Hutchinson County United Way
2015 Annual Report

            This year Hutchinson County United Way continued to strengthen their new Education Initiative.  Throughout the year we educated our community about our new initiative by continually having conversations with our Partner Agencies and our donors while sharing and listening. As we move forward our goal is to help cycle people out of poverty (whether generational or situational poverty) through education.

            Hutchinson County United Way raised $687,089.28 in pledges for the 2014/15 Campaign year; $642.533.08 has actually been received as of February 29, 2016.  Donations are still expected to be received in March.  This was the most raised per capita and per employee of all United Ways in the State of Texas.     

            In 2015 HCUW initiated two policy changes which affected the process of funding distribution to our Program Providers.  In years past, the annual allocations to the Program Providers had been distributed in five equal payments throughout the year and designated fund distributed in four equal payments throughout the year.  Since the majority of our campaign funds are given through payroll deduct, we have created a fund distribution cycle that allows more pledges to come in before the allocations are being paid out.  Allocations and designated funds are now paid out in four equal payments.  HCUW is also changing our fiscal year which changes the first payment to the Program Provides to April instead of January.  With these two changes, we gave a bonus allocation to each agency to make this transition as easy as possible to prevent any provided services provided being disrupted.

This is the last year of our Community Focus Grant Application.  HCUW is implementing another policy change which allows us to partner with our schools to help fight our war on poverty though Education.  In 2016, funding can be requested through our normal Funding Application.

            This year's funding was distributed to 14 Program Providers, two other Non-Profit Organizations in our county, and designations to three other United Ways in the area.  Part of our funding also went towards our new Education Initiative.  Designated funds from our donors are respected and given though they are not encouraged.  Disbursements for 2015 were as follows:

2015/16 Campaign

The economy hit our community hard this year leaving a small mark on our annual fall campaign.  Pledges did come in right at goal, $655,000.  Contributions came from 29 workplaces rallies, 555 businesses, 46 individuals and three organizations from within our community.   We lost a few workplace campaigns and others were down but some went up as well.  

HCUW held our first Kick off Cook off on September 12, 2015.  The event was held in the front parking lot of Amarillo National Bank, Borger Branch & to the side of the building in the Phillips Building parking lot.  Eleven cook teams entered four categories:  Ribs, Brisket, Pork Butt & other.  The event was held from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and had around 550 attendees.  Guests enjoyed delicious B-B-Q while learning about the services provided by our Partner Agencies.  Everyone enjoyed the day.  This will be our Kick off for the next several years.

What an exciting year!  HCUW keeps evolving.  Looking forward to 2016!

 


Hutchinson County United Way 
2014 Annual Report

            This year brought many challenges to our county.  A fire swept through a community in Fritch which took 125 family dwellings.  A Relief Committee was put together with major leadership from the community helping our efforts.  Donations from inside and outside the county were received for the fire victims totalling $660,000. HCUW also contributed $50,000.  To date $708,291.96 of the $710,000 has been spent to help 60 families who suffered loss in the fire to get back into permanent housing. 

            Before the Fire, HCUW had the opportunity to bring in Dr. Donna Beagle, Communications Across Barriers, and Dr. Damen Lopez, No Excuses University, as we continue to work into our Education Initiative.  Dr. Beagle brought education to over 100 people in the community on how to work with and understand people living in poverty.  Dr. Lopez spoke with many people in the community as well as representatives from the 3 school districts concerning his program which says that it is the community’s responsibility to make sure that every child has the opportunity to receive an education that will allow him to make a living wage as an adult. HCUW was able to help sponsor 25 educators from Fritch ISD, PSPC ISD, and Buttercup to attend an NEU workshop.  All three groups returned and are in process of implementing this program into their schools.

            Hutchinson County United Way received $674,744.66 in pledges for the 2013/14 Campaign year.  This was the most raised per capita and per employee of all United Ways in the State of Texas.  $606,712.76 has actually been received as of February 28, 2015.   Donations will continue to come in.  

            For 2014, allocations were as usual.  Every May, all Hutchinson County Non Profit  Organizations have the opportunity to apply for funding to be given out in the following year.  Organizations also have an opportunity for funding through our Community Focus Grant Program.  This program provides funding outside the traditional allocation process and is a structured process to award any possible excess funds.   This structure will change for 2015 as we move into our Education Initiative of our Community Impact Work.

            This year's funding was distributed to 13 Program Providers, six other Non-Profit Organizations in our county and designations to two other United Ways in the area.  Part of our funding also went towards our new Education Initiative.  Designated funds from our donors are respected and given though they are not encouraged.  Disbursements for 2013 were as follows:

Hutchinson County United Way
2013 Annual Report

            HCUW decided in 2013  to move in an exciting new direction that seeks to address some of the root causes of many of the biggest issues that hold people back from becoming self-sufficient, thriving citizens of Hutchinson County.  The direction is called "Community Impact" and is intended to permanently treat the causes of poverty, drug abuse, violence, lack of education, joblessness, etc. instead of just temporarily treating the symptoms.  We will begin implementing this transition in 2014 at the agencies begin asking for 2015 funding requests.

            Hutchinson County United Way received $645,753.37 in pledges for the 2012/13 Campaign year.  This was the most raised per capita and per employee of all United Ways in the State of Texas.  $571,311.38  has been received as of January 11, 2014.

            For 2013, allocations were as usual.  Every  May, all Hutchinson County Non Profit  Organizations have the opportunity to apply for funding to be given out in the following year.  Organizations also have an opportunity for funding through our Community Focus Grant Program.  This program provides funding outside the traditional allocation process and is a structured process to award any possible excess funds.

            This year's Day of Caring was held on April 27, 2013.  There were 325+ volunteers that helped in 450 homes of our elderly and disabled. They did yard work, trim trimming, painting, and small repairs.  This shows how caring our community is, for people to give of their time to help out their neighbors.

            This year the Borger High School Senior Class volunteered on the Friday before Day of Caring to begin prep work at 10 different jobs.  It was exciting to see our young adults helping meets the needs of people in our community.  This made a huge impact on the students and School Personnel that helped that day.  We are happy to say that this year's Borger High Senior Class will be partnering with us again.
