We all benefit when our community improves. When a child has quality EDUCATION, he will likely grow to be FINANCIALLY STABLE. And a person who is financially stable will have more access to HEALTH CARE and will rely less on SUPPORT SERVICES. This impacts everyone in our community and enhances our quality of life.
Every dollar you give to United Way helps improve people’s lives. How? There is strength in numbers. We take your donation and increase its power by adding it to others. Then United Way invests in worthwhile local programs that are meeting needs in our area. It takes many volunteers and many donors LIVING UNITED to make it work.
Your gift to United Way helps people you know - your neighbors, your co-workers, your child’s classmates. We encourage you to LIVE UNITED and please support United Way. We need your help to make a difference in Southeast Mississippi.

Message from the Vice Chair of the Board

Greg Hodges, VP Hancock Bank

Winston Churchill once said “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” This year, I am excited to serve as the campaign chair United Way of Southeast Mississippi’s 2017 annual workplace campaign. I have personally been a supporter of United Way for many years. I can assure you that the money you give stays local and is overseen by a local board of directors. For every $1 donated, $.99  is being spent by United Way of Southeast Mississippi on the agencies and programs it supports.

Won’t you join me this year and give to United Way of Southeast Mississippi? With your help we can build a strong community where all individuals and families achieve their potential through education, financial stability, and healthy living.


Thank you to all supporters of United Way of Southeast Mississippi. You are helping make this community a better place. If you are considering running a workplace campaign for the first time, need information on how to become a  donor or have questions regarding United Way of Southeast Mississippi and any of the programs/agencies it’s supports, do not hesitate to call them at  601-545-7141.
