UNITED WAY EXCEEDS 2020 CAMPAIGN GOAL!
As I reflect on this past year and the 2020 campaign season, I am reminded of just how fortunate we are to live in such a giving community. The United Way of Gordon County exceeded its 2020 campaign goal of $750,000 with a total amount of $800,500 pledged to our community. Without our donors, we would not be able to invest in programs that support, advocate, and uplift the people in Calhoun-Gordon County.
