Start Your Campaign

“In the many places I’ve lived, I have always known about the United Way; whether through a campaign or individual solicitation to support United Way – I had an idea how they supported the community. That all changed when my family moved to Catawba County in 2017.

“I was quickly introduced to the Catawba County United Way (CCUW) through a program at The Chamber of Catawba County – where I heard and saw firsthand how they really support the community.  It was through this introduction I knew I wanted to be a part of CCUW.

"The incredible work the staff and volunteers do for the CCUW to address and combat some of our community’s biggest challenges is remarkable. They care!”

- Patrick Broos, Director Supply Chain Mgmt, Catawba Valley Health System
