With its 2020 campaign underway, United Way of Palo Pinto County board President Christina Phenix, pictured center, spoke to Rotary Club of Mineral Wells members at Wednesday's meeting.
All monies donated to United Way stay within Palo Pinto County. The agency supports local non-profit partner agencies Addiction Recovery Ministries, CASA-Hope For Children, Girl Scouts of Palo Pinto County, Meals on Wheels of Palo Pinto County, Mineral Wells Center of Life, New Haven/Helping Hands, Palo Pinto County 4H, Child Welfare Board of Palo Pinto County and The Salvation Army.
United Way of PPC this year also matched funds raised for Back Pack Buddies of Mineral Wells.
Because of COVID-19, the agency this year has to cancel its biggest and very popular fundraiser, the annual Penny Auction. On Thursday they will be selling baked potato lunches at Southside Church of Christ, and have planned a bucket brigade to collect donations in town.
For more information about this year's campaign, the partner agencies or to make a donation, call 940-325-1344 or email uwppc76067@gmail.com. Find United Way of Palo Pinto County on Facebook here. They also have a website under development here.
