President’s Blog – Someone Needs You

“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing.”  Jean Vanier

One of the marvelous things about our community is YOU.  Your support of the United Way of Southwest Alabama (UWSWA) welcomes and supports people through a pooling of community resources.  Your gift, combined with thousands of other gifts, changes lives and saves lives in Choctaw, Clarke, Mobile and Washington Counties.

UWSWA focuses on community and community building and recognizes that by joining forces (through our 11 internal programs, 45 partner agencies, dozens of community partners, volunteers, and donors), we can address the issues facing our neighbors, friends, and family members in their times of need.

Your gift helped provide the following services (this list is not inclusive):

  • Meals Served                                                            7,399,623
  • Pounds of Food Distributed                                   8,613,996
  • Financial Stability Training                                             1,602
  • Number of Disaster Clients Served                              1,180
  • Physician Visits                                                             16,370
  • Number of Shelter Nights Provided                           29,818
  • Medications Provided                                                  72,755

As we launch the 2022 Community Campaign, we ask for your continued support. Your contributions empower the successes of so many, afford them a better future, and provide a fertile ground so they can plant a seed for growth.

Your annual gifts have impacted and will impact multiple programs, agencies, individuals, families and generations to come.

One again, thank you for your support and for your commitment to our community.

Someone Needs You Today.
