At one time, it was “People Helping People.” Nowadays, it’s “Live United.”
The slogans change, and so do those leading the office, but the mission of the Jackson County United Way remains consistent — and worthy of our participation.
This mission has graced Jackson County with its presence, in one form or another, since 1962. Now, with local residents and communities facing challenging circumstances as the recession lingers, the United Way continues to play an important role in the lives of many of all ages from around the county.
Like the rest of the country, Jackson County felt the tremors when the ground under the national economy began to shift and shake. We, too, have our eyes on the horizon looking for full recovery. Until it arrives, those among us still struggling can turn to 20 locally funded and operated Jackson County United Way agencies for support.
