The United Way of Lamar County Board of Directors unanimously voted on Thursday to give each of its partner agencies a $1000 bonus.
Executive Director Jenny Wilson explained, “Our 2022 campaign currently has over $607,000 in pledges and donations. We wanted to share this surplus with all of our partner agencies.”
Wilson adds, ” This was a total surprise for our partner agencies, and that part was fun. We value the relationship we have with each of our nonprofit partners and support the important work they do. Being a United Way partner agency definitely has its rewards, but more importantly this investment into our community will benefit all the clients each agency serves.
The 2022 United Way of Lamar County partner agencies include The King’s Daughters, the American Red Cross, The Boys and Girls Club, Boy Scouts, the Lamar County Child Welfare Board, the Lamar County Literacy Council, RSVP, The Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, Horizon House, the Children’s Advocacy Center, Safe-T Agency, the REACH Center, Habitat for Humanity, Paris Metro, Downtown Food Pantry, CASA for Kids, and Tailored Rides.
