It's About Lasting Change


A message from Bob Hardaway, United Way of Northwest Georgia Campaign Chairman

As Chairman of this year’s United Way Campaign, I have seen all the great work that has been done by United Way through the years. It’s easy to be passionate about the mission of United Way. I have seen firsthand the impact from the generous commitments that members of our community make to help one another. This giving attitude, and desire to help others through a difficult time, demonstrates the core values of serving others in our community. We are all very blessed to call Whitfield and Murray Counties our home.

I am so thankful to everyone who has taken the opportunity to give, advocate, and volunteer to ensure that our United Way is there to assist our neighbors, coworkers, and friends who need a hand up. United Way isn’t about short-term charity. It’s about lasting change. The success of United Way is not possible without the almost 3,000 volunteers who ensure that the most critical needs are met in the most efficient and effective ways. It’s one of the many reasons I’m proud to be a member of the united Way of Northwest Georgia Board of Directors.

Without your financial support, United Way would not be able to fund life-changing programs in education, basic needs, and health.  Donations both large and small help make it possible to have a positive impact on the lives of over 55,000 people in our community. It takes all of us working together to win for our community. Because when we come together as a community, we make a much-needed difference in the lives of children, families, the elderly, and those with special needs.

For all who have already donated to United Way – a big THANK YOU!
