United Way of Gordon County hosts the following events and fundraisers throughout the year:

Casino Night is our Spring fundraising event that typically takes place in mid to late March. 

Unity Run 5K is our annual 5K that is always on the last Tuesday in September each year. 

The Pumpkin Patch takes place in late September/early October where we partner with Downtown Calhoun to sell pumpkins to raise money for both causes. 

Singing For Toys is a partnership with local schools, AdventHealth Gordon, and Walmart where kids sing at Walmart in early December, and guests are encouraged to buy toys to donate to AdventHealth Gordon EMS' toy drive fundraiser. 

Claus For A Cause also takes place in early December and is a wonderful community event where people can come and get free photos with Santa, enjoy desserts and hot beverages, make crafts, hear a story, listen to live music, and much more. It's a great time to enjoy the holiday season and give money to impact the community.

If you have any questions or want to help with one of our events, please contact us at or 706-602-5548.


We are excited to announce that our new spring event for 2022 is going to be Casino Night. That's right! An adult only night away all dressed up playing several popular casino games from poker to blackjack to craps and more. You get to have a great time, give to a great cause, and possibly walk home with some amazing prizes while also getting to drink and dance!

Singing for Toys

United Way of Gordon County, Voluntary Action Center (VAC), Gordon Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Walmart, and students from the Calhoun City and Gordon County Schools chorus departments have partnered together to sing at Walmart. For many years the choruses sing for toys. This Christmas tradition continues and works well for Gordon County. Families and friends join the fun of listening to the children sing Christmas music. As the second generation of performers shares their songs, many of their parents are reminded of the times they too sang for toys. The EMS volunteers will be outside Walmart collecting toys or contributions for the VAC's Christmas toy program. This event happens each year in December at the Calhoun Walmart located at 450 W. Belmont Dr., Calhoun,  GA 30701.

Claus For A Cause is for the community. Come out to the Calhoun Depot and enjoy a festive, fun evening. For a small donation, you can get photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, enjoy live Christmas music from a great band, enjoy desserts and warm beverages, win prizes, do crafts, and much more. 

December 6th from 5pm - 8pm
