Ron Drinkard is the United Way Campaign Chairman who says, "Certainly that's always a danger when we have some programs that receive the majority of their funding from the united way and we have some programs out there that are in that very situation, they depend on United Way more than any other source and they don't receive those funds there is a chance those services will have to be reduced.
The United Way funds more than 40 local agencies like Hospice and Aid to Pregnant Mothers, that help thousands of people right here in our community.
