Since 1939 in the Hannibal area, local businesses, individuals, and organizations have given through a community campaign to make great things happen. This community campaign, once known as the Community Chest and the Red Feather Society is now the United Way Campaign! Over 15 million dollars have been raised and invested in the local community through this yearly campaign.
It is our mission at United Way to increase the capacity of people to care for one another. Basically, it is our mission to create opportunities for people to care for others by giving of their time, talents, and treasures in order to see our vision for the community come to life—a community where all individuals are empowered to achieve their potential.
We work to support critical services in our community— we want to ensure everyone has access to food, water, shelter, safety, & security. We also want to provide opportunities for upward mobility— we support educational efforts and programs that promote self-sufficiency. These are our priorities and what United Way does with dollars invested in the campaign. Organizations receiving support from the United Way Campaign are listed below! Consider giving to support these organizations today!
