Lead the Way
Raised to Date: $450,000
Our annual United WayCampaign raises funds for our 15 Partner Agencies who provide services to different residents of our county. We kicked off this year's campaign with our 5th Annual Cook Off on September 14th, 2019. Best BBQ Cook Off ever! All of our Agencies had booths set up at the Cook Off that provided information of the services that they offer. YOU must join us next year and see how your United Way Dollars are invested back into the community. We also have began partnering with the School Districts and Frank Phillips College to help take care of the needs that might be preventing students from getting the education that they need to be a productive citizen of our county.
