United Way of Bartow County launches annual Campaign

The United Way of Bartow County’s fundraising  campaign aims to raise $500,000 by Nov. 30. Bearing the slogan “Be the Change,” the drive is primarily going to generate funds through payroll deductions, which  enables employees to donate a minimal amount yearlong, with a portion of their  paycheck designated to the United Way.

“I would say 95 percent of our  campaign goal is [raised] through payroll deduction,” said Brenda Morehouse,  president of the United Way of Bartow County. “… In Bartow County, we have  companies that only have 10 employees and we’ve got companies that have 1,500  employees that are doing payroll-deduction campaigns. It doesn’t matter the  size. When you get a group of people together, no matter what the size is,  giving a little bit per week it adds up to make a difference.”

Funds  raised through the campaign will be dispersed, based on need, to United Way’s 16  agencies: AIDS Alliance of Northwest Georgia, Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter,  Bartow County 4-H Club, Boys & Girls Clubs of Bartow County, Bartow Civil  Air Patrol, American Red Cross, Christian League for Battered Women, New  Beginnings Food Outreach, The Salvation Army, Good Shepherd Foundation, Habitat  for Humanity, Hickory Log Vocational School, North Bartow Community Services,  Bartow Health Access, Girl Scouts Division of Bartow County and Advocates for  Children. Combined, the nonprofits serve about 60,000 people each  year.

The campaign unofficially kicked off Aug. 18 with the Dennis Grogan  Memorial Sporting Clay Tournament. Featuring 124 shooters, the event raised  $23,500. Northside Pawn, which consisted of Rick Heath, Mike Churchwell, Roy  James and Mike Martin, was the first place team. The individual winners were  first place — Rick Heath, Northside Pawn, and Chris Geiger, IBEW Local 613;  second place — Kyle Waters, K Machine Industrial Services, and Nick Lumpkin,  Yancy Brothers; and third place — Ryan Phillips, Saiia Construction, and Mike  Martin, Northside Pawn.

“Georgia Power prides themselves on being a good  steward to the community and what better way to start out the United Way  campaign [than] with this kickoff, with something that’s so special to Georgia  Power,” said Janet Queen, United Way’s past board chairperson and project  relocation coordinator for Georgia Power Plant Bowen, which organizes the  sporting clay tournament. “… We’re [also] always very proud to participate in  [payroll deduction]. We do a meeting with our employees here and go through the  same process of explaining to them, so they understand that United Way is  supporting all of these agencies not just one, but all partnering  agencies.”
