Volunteers from United Way of Hall County will take to the streets next week to thank the community for their support of the organization’s annual campaign drive.
On Wednesday, during the morning commute, volunteers will wave at motorists and hold up signs with messages of thanks at four key locations in Hall County — along Green Street in Gainesville, Quillians Corner in North Hall, Mundy Mill Road in Oakwood and Spout Springs Road in Flowery Branch.
Contributions to the United Way campaign provide financial support to 16 agencies in the county. In addition, United Way has partnered with the Drug Free Coalition to get the word out about drug use, promoted volunteer opportunities in the community, supplied 600 filled backpacks to children and built three Born Learning trails to teach children 5 and younger.
United Way of Hall County will announce the final results of the current campaign during a luncheon event on March 10.
