Did you know 99% of every dollar donated to the Toombs-Montgomery-Wheeler County United Way is used to benefit organizations in those counties, such as The Mercy Ministries?
Did you know the local United Way supports:
- Crisis Emergency Services
- Rehabilitation & Special Education Services
- Youth Development Programs
- Senior Citizen Care
- And, most importantly, they financial support more than 25 local human-service member agencies like ours!
"Community Doing Community The United Way" was the theme of United Way's 2018 Annual Kick-Off Luncheon Thursday, September 13th.
For the 2018 year the agency has set a goal to raise $550,000. By the end of the luncheon, they were 31% into their goal. No doubt Toombs, Montgomery and Wheeler counties will raise the additional funds over the next couple of months ...
...because no one does community better than this tri-county area!
At the luncheon we heard stories of a family that needed help with a light bill, a hungry homeless woman who couldn't afford her $2 medication, and of a disabled girl confined to her home because she couldn't afford a ramp. The United Way helps people like these in our community who truly need help, and when they can't help them, they send them to organizations like The Mercy Ministries or The Refuge.
The Refuge is a shelter for battered women and children. Its location is a secret, but the good they are doing for the community is not.
A woman who's life was changed by The Refuge at the luncheon told of how she and her two kids were saved by The Refuge from her homicidal then-husband. Today, she and her children are thriving, all because her community gave back to her community!
Supporters like you make helping those in need to get better physically, spiritually and financially... impacting familes in big ways all throughout our communities.
We thank all of you who graciously give to The Mercy Ministries and to organizations like the United Way. We couldn't do what we do without your support!
