 Mississippi is ranked at

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No. 2 in charitable giving.

 

 

 

 

 

So, Mississippi may rank low 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

some polls, but I for one

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

like knowing I live and work in 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

one of the top ranked states when it

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

comes to charitable giving! Check

Thank you Jackson & George Counties!

Carolynfront.jpgI wanted to take this opportunity to say a special thank you to everyone who helped us build a stronger and better community this year. Your generosity enabled United Way for Jackson & George Counties to exceed our goal of $2 million dollars and will ensure the 21 agencies and programs that we support continue to be there for those less fortunate.

 

In Jackson and George counties, our people are truly our greatest resource. Whenever there is a need, we come together and make a way so that we can be a blessing to others. No one person or one agency can do it alone, but united, we can and do make a positive difference in the lives of so many of our friends and neighbors. Your kindness and willingness to offer a hand up to someone less fortunate show your true heart, and it is a privilege to be a part of such a compassionate community.

 

This is your community and this is your United Way. If we can ever be of service to you, please do not hesitate to call on us. Our campaign will run through the end of 2014. If you or your company would like to help us continue building a united community, please contact our office. We can also offer ideas on how you can be an advocate for United Way in the community or help you find a rewarding opportunity as a volunteer with one of our agencies.

 

President Calvin Coolidge once said, “No person was ever honored for what he received. He was honored for what he gave.” On behalf of the United Way Board of Directors, staff, agencies and all of the countless number of people who will be helped because of you, please accept our sincerest gratitude. You are truly honored and appreciated for what you gave.
