United Way extends drive with new online donation option
The cost of gas has gone up. The price of food has gone up. The price of rent has gone up.
Now more than ever families can use a hand to make ends meet.
And the Catawba County United Way (CCUW) is focused on helping parents and teachers meet those needs throughout the new school year with new online donation option that drop ships items directly to the United Way.
Donations benefit students in all three local public-school districts: Catawba County, Hickory Public and Newton-Conover City Schools.
The success of the CCUW School Supply Drive means hundreds of local students have the tools they need to succeed.
