Put a Little Love in Your Life

We all know that February is most recognized as a month focused on love. We celebrate Valentine’s Day by gifting stuffed animals, chocolates, and flowers for those who are special in our lives. 

These are the “Hallmark” ways of showing love to each other.  But, what if I told you that you could share your love a little differently this February?


Be a good neighbor.

United Way Meets Record-Breaking Goal

Bob Hardaway led the charge in 2019 as the United Way Campaign Chair. Seeing the great need in our community, he volunteered to chair the campaign. Bob has been an avid supporter of United Way for over 20 years.

He has always given generously of both his financial resources and of his time. Chairing the campaign can be a challenge, but Bob Hardaway rose to the occasion.

Seeing the Daily Impact of United Way

Every person, I believe, wants to make a difference in his or her community. But where does one begin? How does one go about giving back for a life they have been richly blessed with? For me, that journey started seven years ago, arriving in Dalton, Georgia, from the Chicago, Illinois area.


As a teenager, I heard a quote from Ronald Reagan. He stated, “We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”


2020 Vision




2020 Vision represents being able to see clearly, and here at United Way of Northwest Georgia we want to provide clarity for what we do in our community.

It's the Best Time of Year for Most

During this holiday season of giving and all the hustle and bustle, we can sometimes forget that not everyone has something to celebrate.

The holidays can be an unwelcome reminder to many of what they have lost, but here at United Way we help individuals and families see hope for a better tomorrow. 

At United Way, we are in the business of building better futures, not just during the holiday season, but 365 days a year.
