WLOX Editorial: Why you should donate to United Way

The annual giving campaign for United Way of South Mississippi is under way. When we donate to United Way, 99% of the money is spent right here in South Mississippi working to achieve these goals: To create long-lasting impact, to improve outcomes in education, health and income for everyone in South Mississippi by giving children and families the tools and support they need to thrive in our community.

Now that the annual campaign is kicking off, many of you will be asked to give through donations at work. We hope that you will give this serious consideration.

Your donations are a good investment in the future of our community.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
