United Way Announces Record-Breaking Goal!

Piet and Julian Dossche, United Way of Northwest Georgia Campaign Co-Chairs, announced the 2022-2023 Campaign Goal of $4.150 Million for Whitfield & Murray County at the Kickoff Party and CEO Trike Race last night at Burr Park.

Local CEOs raced to the finish line at the 10th annual CEO Trike Race, with Dorsett Industries winning the race. Congratulations!! United Way annually impacts the education, basic needs, and health of over 47,000 people in our local community. The mission is simple: Improving Lives. Inspiring Donors. Uniting Community.

“This year’s goal is our largest yet. We want to ensure that needs continue to be met in our community,” remarked Piet Dossche. 

“Each year United Way of Northwest Georgia has dynamic leaders to spearhead our campaign. This year is no exception. Piet and Julian raised their hand to lead the charge and assembled a team of committed and determined individuals who have reached out to their friends and colleagues to ask for their support. I have no doubt our record-breaking goal of $4.150 million will be met. United Way’s success is an important part of our community’s overall success,” shared United Way President, Amanda Burt.

 “United Way is here serving our community when you need us most. We are a strong, vibrant, and diverse community. We are a community that steps up to help our neighbors in times of need – by lending a hand, by giving our financial resources to someone with a need greater than our own, and by doing whatever it takes to ensure our community thrives. United Way is important to me and our community, and I’m proud to be a part of the team,” noted United Way Board Chair, Landon Hair.

Over 35 United Way volunteers annually analyze the needs of the community, making sure your gift meets the most critical needs in the most efficient and effective way.

“We all benefit when you give to United Way of Northwest Georgia. Your dollars stay local and go to where they make the biggest impact, so our neighbors don’t go hungry, children have safe places to learn and grow, and struggling families can make ends meet. Right now, we all have the opportunity to make Whitfield and Murray counties a better place,” stated Julian Dossche.
