With just one week remaining in the 2022-2023 fundraising campaign, Hopkins County United Way remains $42,492.92 shy of the $150,000 campaign goal, which benefits 18 local nonprofit agencies serving Hopkins County residents of all ages and segments of the community.

Hopkins County United Way 2022-2023 campaign volunteers present at the Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2022, workers report meeting included (standing, from left) Dinh Tran, Charlotte Henderson, Mary Ferguson, Shelly Trammel on behalf of CHRISTUS, Carolyn McKinney, Linda Gallagher, Garrett Glass in support of Emily and on behalf of Guaranty Bank and Trust, Lynda Hager, and HCUW Executive Secretary Susan Berning; (seated, left) Amy Griggs, Board President Kristy Landers Moseley, and Campaign Chair Emily Glass; and (not pictured) Kayla Price Mitchell and Bill Owens.

The community generously contributed another $37,325.29 in donations to the 2022-2023 campaign over the past week, bringing the total received so far to $107,507.08 as of the campaign workers report meeting Tuesday.

HCUW has one more campaign workers meeting, at which campaign officials hope to close out the 2022-2023 campaign. All campaign workers who are able are encouraged to attend, what hopefully will be a celebration in meeting the $150,000 goal to provide funding as allocated for 18 agencies.

They can even be made in memory or honor or memory of a loved one, friend, mentor or someone of importance.
