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.

Formerly known as ARISE2Read of Jackson-Madison County, The Read Team is now a new program of United Way of West Tennessee. The need for additional learning opportunities has significantly increased over the past year. Aligning the programming within United Way will expand the opportunity for a greater number of students to participate with The Read Team and experience literacy improvement.

    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.
