In front of an audience of roughly 300 community leaders, volunteers, supporters, and other community partners at United Way of Southwest Alabama’s annual meeting and campaign celebration, Don Keeler, the 2014 Campaign Chairman and Vice Presdient of Human Resources at Austal USA announced that for the third year in a row, United Way of Southwest Alabama’s (UWSWA) campaign achieved an increase.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has made a profound mark on the world we live in today. He is the only non-president to have a national holiday dedicated in his honor—created by an act of Congress in 1983— and the only non-president memorialized in the Mall in Washington, DC.  In 1994, Congress designated MLK Day a national day of service, the sole federal holiday observed in this way.

December is one of our favorite months here at United Way! Everyone is in the holiday spirit and helping others becomes a more frequent occurrence. We are thrilled today to recognize not one, but three Volunteers of the month for December. These women not only give their time in the holiday season, but year round, specifically to the Dumas Wesley Clothing Closet. Congratulations to Amanda Hunter, Ruby Pond, and Barbara Burks, United Way’s December Volunteers of the Month.
