Later this year, United Way of West TN will be hosting Unitas, an 80th anniversary celebration of their work within the region, at the Carl Perkins Civic Center. This community-wide event will feature as its distinguished guest former heavyweight champion, pastor, author, and entrepreneur, George Foreman.

This summer, we hosted our annual Celebration Breakfast at First United Methodist Church in Jackson. During this event, recognization was given to last year’s Top 30 Giving Companies, Campaigns of Excellence, the Agency Director of the Year, and this year’s Corporate Sponsors. We also updated attendees on last year’s accomplishments and recent projects.

    I grew up in a dysfunctional family and was very confused. I did not know what a real family was supposed to be like. Because of treatment and United Way, I was able to give that opportunity to my son and the opportunity was given to me. I have been given a new life, and it’s unimaginable.
