THANK YOU to all who DINED UNITED in October! This week-long campaign invited residents to come out to local restaurants, eat as you normally would, and help support your local United Way at the same time!  Participating restaurants, Chick's on the Square, Chubby's, Sweet Shack, and Magnolia's, donated back a portion of their sales to United Way during the times/dates totaling $500!

Reading Day for United Way!

Reading Day proved to be a fun time for all with celebrity readers, games, snacks, and plenty of time for reading! Kids also received a new book to take home and continue their reading fun. Thank you to all to who came out for the afternoon, all who donated time and money, and to our event sponsor, Pella Macomb. We hope to have more events like this in the future, so stay tuned!
