United Way of Southwest Alabama (UWSWA) and the South Alabama Free Electronic-File (SAFE) Coalition know that the holidays are a time of financial burden for many in our community and warn taxpayers to not fall prey to predatory tax preparers, who often cost taxpayers more money by promising immediate payment of tax refunds.

As we enter the holiday season, United Way of Southwest Alabama (UWSWA) understands that the holidays may not be a merry, care-free time for everyone in our region. Financial stresses can be particularly overwhelming during this time of the year and getting financial advice costs money. As a result, many struggle to achieve financial stability without a source of simple, clear information to help individuals and families better manage money.

Over the past two months, Women United of Southwest Alabama, the women’s leadership initiative of United Way of Southwest Alabama (UWSWA) collected diaper donations to advance the health and economic stability for families in our area. The drive collected approximately 15,000 diapers distributed to five United Way partners: Dumas Wesley Community Center, Goodwill Easter Seals of the Gulf Coast, Gulf Regional Early Childhood Services, Penelope House, and the Salvation Army of Coastal Alabama.

In the wake of the recent flooding in Louisiana, the Labor Council in Southwest Alabama collected essential items to donate to our neighbors in Louisiana. Labor affiliates and members of the public delivered donated items to the Baton Rouge community the last weekend in August.
