COLUMBUS, Ga — The feeling of fall may not be in the air, but the calendar is speeding toward it. For the United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley, that means it’s almost time to kick off this fall’s fundraising campaign– the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
Through its annual campaign, last year, the United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley raised $7.1 million and was able to fund 57 programs and 29 agencies.
“Whether it’s getting somebody housing, or keeping a child in school, or helping with their homework, or Hospice, or Goodwill Success Center, it’s making this community a great place to live and work, because sometimes we all need help. And that’s what United Way and our partner agencies are there for,” says Scott Ferguson, President & CEO, of United Way of Chattahoochee Valley.
There’s still time to make reservations for the fall campaign kick-off which is September 15– and that’s the time the United Way will announce this fall’s campaign goal.
“Our kick off is always a little bit of entertainment. We’re going to have some fun, but it’s always motivational,” says Ferguson. “There will be somebody speaking about how their life was changed. And educational: What is United Way, and why are we asking you to support it?”
The United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley says it’s able to help others all because of the generosity of our community.
