Let's get kids ready to go Back 2 School!
Our Back 2 School season is well underway now at United Way. We held our first event in Pontotoc on June 23, and we have 6 more fairs to go!

Here's a handy list of all the dates and locations:
We still need to raise a little more money to cover the cost of the backpacks and supplies for all of our events. You can help by sponsoring a child for just $12.50! You can choose to sponsor one child or several, and we encourage companies and church groups to combine resources to make a bigger impact.

We also can use more volunteers, and there are spaces available for agencies to have a booth at the event to offer an activity, information, or additional giveaways.
2018 United Way Campaign
We are excited to announce our campaign theme, Campaign Chair, and fundraising goal for 2018!

Mr. David Wilson, president of North Mississippi Medical Center, is heading up this year's campaign, with a team of about 35 Campaign Cabinet volunteers for support. Thanks to David for his time and service to the campaign!

Our theme this year is "What's your Way?" Everyone has a way to give back to the community, so what's yours? Whether it's a workplace campaign or direct giving, volunteering or sharing how a United Way agency has affected your life -- everyone has a part to play in building a better community. So find your way to give back and make Northeast Mississippi even better!

And our goal for this year's United Way campaign is again larger than ever: $2,550,000! We know that David and his Campaign Cabinet will go a long way in helping us reach this goal. And of course our staff will work harder than ever to keep growing United Way and our impact on the community.
