The United Way 365 Small Business Giving Program is designed for smaller organizations that want to be a part of the United Way network, but may not have the resources to run a full-blown workplace campaign. For as little as a dollar a day, small business owners join a circle of individuals working every day to strengthen our community.

What do you love most about this community?
Being relatively a newcomer to Southeast Missouri, it has been amazing how friendly and supportive people are. It didn’t take long to build relationships with fellow business people.
Why do you choose to support your community through United Way?
I support United Way because of their reputation and the broad reach and knowledge of the needs of Southeast Missouri. I could contribute directly to an individual charity, but going through United Way, I know the money is going to the best programs out there.
United Way is dedicated to addressing needs in the communities we serve, and right now, transportation is at the top of our list. Our current transportation survey guides long-term solutions, while our Build-a-Bench campaign gives immediate relief.
