Companies and employees recognized for contributions to Moffat County United Way
Craig — The 22 companies and their employees who contributed to the 2017 Moffat County United Way community campaign were honored at a luncheon Tuesday at the Clarion Inn & Suites in Craig.
“Our theme was ‘United We Can,’ and united we did. We were able to exceed our goal and will provide additional funds to agencies this year,” said Executive Director Amanda Arnold.
Donations from individuals, businesses and corporations in Moffat County helped raise $450,500 for United Way.
”Your contributions are working year round, developing children and youth to their full potential, strengthening families and neighborhoods, enriching the lives of our elderly, supporting those who are rebuilding their lives and so much more,” said Arnold, as she thanked businesses and their employees for their donations.
Donations ranged from piggy banks filled with pennies to large contributions, and every cent raised will stay in the community, Arnold said.
Two organizations were acknowledged for significant increases this year.
“The success of Moffat County United Way is only possible when we have donors who contribute to our annual campaign,” Arnold said.
United Way Board Vice President Audrey Ann Masterson recognized outgoing board members at the luncheon, including Andy Mills, Linda DeRose, Donna Theimer and Joe Bird.
The luncheon concluded with a short speech by Board President Sandra King.
“Your monetary gift brings hope and opportunity to the lives of many Moffat County residents. We are so fortunate to live in this community and have a hand in helping others up,” King said.
