our board of directors

Much of what we do at United Way is storytelling.  We tell the stories of our Partner Agencies and their need for community support.  We tell the stories of our residents who utilize these services to feed their families, to obtain necessary prescriptions and to educate their children on right and wrong.  We tell the stories of our donors and the thousands of lives they impact by donating through United Way.   

If someone were to start writing a book about your life, what would it say?  Would it be jam-packed full of adventure or comparable to other books on the shelf?  On some level I think all of our stories would be similar to one another.  Now is your chance to stand out and start a new chapter.  You have the ability to change not just your story, but someone else’s. 

When you donate to McDonough County United Way your donation is staying local and supporting our 20 Partner Agencies and the thousands of residents they serve. 

Now is your chance to Change The Story.

Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNTIED.
