At their meeting Tuesday, June 7th at 11:00 am, Hopkins County United Way Board introduced new Board members and the 2017-2018 Campaign Chair.
Brandon Williams opened the meeting with a prayer, over the community, and the organization, before he proceeded to announce the new board members: Tom McKee, Beverly Owens, and new campaign chairman: Adam Teer.
Adam Teer announced the meeting dates for September and October. The campaign goal for this year is to raise $175,000 to give to recipients.
Brandon Williams stated. “We do have a pretty cool and unique opportunity…We have $175,000 that we divvy up among recipients and we’re doing all that before we raised a single dollar…We spent two days-we interviewed all the folks that were applying for the money and how they’d use the funds in Hopkins County…and that’s how we made our decisions.”
