Eddie Beard, 2020 CCUW Campaign Chair, Catawba Valley Health System President/CEO

“Catawba County United Way supports numerous organizations within our community in ways that most of us don’t begin to realize. Not only do our partner organizations address short-term financial situations, healthcare needs and other social services, but they also mentor and support our youth so that they can grow into the community leaders we will need in the future.  As Catawba County and our nation experience an unprecedented situation, many who would previously have supported our campaign now find themselves in need of that very help. I urge you to make either a one-time contribution or continuing pledge to the Catawba County United Way so that we can continue to do the work that makes our community a better place.”

Employees of companies participating in this year's Catawba County United Way's Fair Share Donors program (1 hour pay per month) will go into 10 drawings, starting on Sept. 23, for a chance at being a finalist to win either a Kia Forte, Hyundai Elantra or a Volkswagen Jetta from Paramount Automotive.

Along with giving away a new car, the event raises awareness (and funds) of the impact the United Way has in Catawba County through local programs that address needs in the areas of education, income and health.

Drawings for finalists are held every Thursday with the last one on Dec. 2. The winner will be drawn on Dec. 9.

Give. Advocate. Volunteer.
