There has Never Been a Greater Need to Help Your Neighbor

As we enter a new season and prepare for the Thanksgiving holidays, much has changed since last year.  In fact, it seems nothing is the same.  We all face many uncertainties, but for many in our community who already faced challenges meeting basic needs for themselves and their families, the stress and anxiety produced by the pandemic can seem insurmountable at times.

Meet Chuck and Jody McClurg, our 2020 Campaign Co-Chairs

It’s hard to believe that we are already gearing up for the 2020 United Way campaign! Pacesetter campaigns are running, and results are being tallied. Looking back, we have had some pretty amazing things happen over the last year. Even during a global pandemic, the community and its leadership have stepped up and are making United Way a priority – because many of their employees count on United Way services.

United Way of Northwest Georgia’s Update on Covid-19 Response and Recovery Fund Distribution: Round Three

A Message from Joe Young, United Way Board Chair, and Amanda Burt, President

We hope you and your family are doing well and navigating the changes we are all experiencing related to Covid-19.  As we continue to navigate the crisis in our own community that has gone on much longer than any of us could imagine, we wanted to provide another update to you on the work of United Way through our Covid-19 Response and Recovery Fund.  We are here – serving our community – when you need us most. 

Building Better Futures in Northwest Georgia with United Way

Times are so uncertain right now, and it has been far from “business as usual” for many in our community, especially for corporations, small businesses, and our school systems. Many are facing budget cuts, decreases in staffing, limited inventory, and other unique challenges. United Way and our community partners are no exception. We have had to make some difficult decisions along the way, but more than anything, we want our community to know that we are still in business-- the business of Building Better Futures.



Give. Advocate. Volunteer. United Way of Northwest Georgia employees and volunteers alike keep these three words at the top of mind whenever conversation around our mission arises around town. We must always be ready to share our “elevator speech” (or for our community, hallway speech may be more appropriate). We continually remind ourselves and anyone that will listen how important it is to be a cheerleader for this very special community. We all contribute in our own way.
