We have once again set an ambitious goal of $450,000 for this fall's campaign! Please know that UWWC pledges to be a good steward of our donors' gifts, insuring that their donations are invested to improve the lives of Wise County residents through the agencies that we support. We want to thank Devon Energy and their corporate leadership for their generous donation to the 2015 campaign.
16th Annual United Way Golf Tournament
The rain stopped but the course was too water logged to play. Nevertheless, players enjoyed a great lunch and won door prizes. A putting contest was organized by the Resort and they donated a putter as the prize. A big THANK YOU to our sponsors and participants for your involvement. The event is important for Wise County United Way as it helps fund our operations from outside the Annual Campaign. This means that 100% of campaign funds goes to one of our 30 agencies operating in Wise County.
We strive to be efficient in the dispersement of funds to non-profit organizations assisting residents of Wise County and are very appreciative of your help in achieving this goal.
