United Way of Moore County recently wrapped up another successful fundraising campaign. According to United Way of Moore County Campaign Chair Barry Glasgow, the goal was $540,000, and the pledge total is $547,783.

“Moore County citizens are known for their generosity. We are grateful for our community’s support, and proud to be part of an organization that facilitates investment in agencies who provide much needed services to the citizens of Moore County. With all that has been going on in 2020, many of our agencies have seen the demands on their services increase so it is a real blessing to see everyone chip in to support them.”

United Way of Moore County Executive Director Jackie Wiswell agrees.

“I am humbled by the outpouring of support for the United Way of Moore County and our community. Without the United Way, many of these organizations would not be able raise the funds to carry on their important work. I want to thank all the companies and individuals who have been so generous and made this year’s goal possible.”

It should be noted that proceeds from the fundraising campaign impact 19 partner agencies. These include Boy Scouts, CareNet, CASA 69, Meals on Wheels, Dumas Discovery Center, Dumas Education and Social Ministries, Dumas Satellite Workshop, Epilepsy Foundation, Moore Boys Coalition, Moore County Girls Trust, Moore County Senior Center, Panhandle Children’s Foundation, Panhandle Community Services, Safe Place, The Bridge, The Refuge, The Well Health Center, Texas Panhandle Centers and YMCA of Moore County.
