Heart of Missouri United Way's blog
Each year around this time, we begin to get the question, “Now that the annual campaign is over, what does United Way do the rest of the year?”
Great question! United Way is busy with innovative projects and collaborative community efforts all year long, even when we’re in the thick of campaign efforts. Here are three projects United Way is proud to be a part of.
April 2016 marked the return of Day of Caring for the first time in eight years. After many partner agencies and community volunteers requested that we bring back this daylong volunteer event, we couldn't resist! More than 250 volunteers from 14 area businesses donated a full day to volunteering at a dozen local nonprofit organizations to get some much-needed work done. The work was worth an estimated $40,000!
