39th Annual United Fund Campaign has started with a kick-off meeting

Representatives of the ten Valley United Fund organizations met on Tuesday, November 21st at the Chambers County H. Grady Bradshaw Library to kick off this year’s campaign.

Each organization spoke about their needs and stressed the impact of these United Fund dollars in our community.

The Valley United Fund goal is ambitious this year.  The goal is to raise $100,000.00 which will go to the ten local service organizations.  These organizations provide much needed services to our area.

Valley United Fund President, Adrian Carpenter shared a few words of encouragement with the group and talked about this year’s campaign.

“The Valley United Fund Campaign is an opportunity to help make our community better.  When pondering the needs of our community, I am encouraged to know that the Valley United Fund is helping so many,” Carpenter said.  “I believe in the power of The Valley United Fund to support our community.  We are excited to say that we have set our fund raising goal for this year and I know that we’re going to make this goal.  We will need everyone’s help to do it.  In November we are all reminded to be thankful and to give back to others.  Contributing to the Valley United Fund is a great way to do it.”

The Valley United Fund serves as a non-profit clearing house of sorts, with donations being distributed to the ten member agencies.  The programs that are funded help our whole community and provide much needed services to our local citizens.

Participating agencies include:  The Boys and Girls Club of Chambers County, The Bread Basket Club, The Christian Service Center, The Circle of Care Center for Families, The Domestic Violence Intervention Center, East Alabama Mental Health Center, The Interfaith Food Closet, Save-a-Life, Tri-County Children’s Advocacy Center, and Valley Haven School.

Volunteers will be contacting local citizens and businesses in the next month.
