A Note From Our Director
We all have a stake in what befalls our fellow man. We all benefit when a child succeeds in school, when someone finds a job that will help them provide for their family, or when more people are able to access quality, affordable health care. We rise or fall together. United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community. We win by living United. When you support McDonough County United Way your donation is staying local, supporting our 15 Partner Agencies in their fight to help +11,000 residents they serve.
When you’re INvested, nearly 10,000 area residents are provided with much needed food and daily non-food staples to sustain healthy living. Being INvolved has led to marked improvement in academic performance of nearly 1,500 county school kids who benefit from mentorship and early education programs. Making all residents feel INcluded encourages a more productive, thriving community by ensuring their safety through shelter or legal services and empowering individuals to enter the job market.
I’m INvested, INvolved, INcluded.
Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
