United Way hits the 65% mark

December 30, 2019

United Way has hit the 65% mark thanks to the generous team members of Duncan Regional Hospital (DRH).   It all started with the annual chili cook-off and continued with the employee pledge drive; this year they have helped pushed us toward our goal of $325,000. 

“The DRH team raised over $52,000 for this year’s United Way Campaign.  I am truly proud of our team’s internal fundraising efforts.  This represents a fantastic commitment to improving lives throughout our community.” said LeAnn McCord campaign coordinator for DRH.

Patty Wininger co-chairman of the campaign added “As a former employee of DRH, I am so happy for the success. They truly understand the need and work of the United Way. I encourage everyone to get involved and make a difference as 99% of funds raised stay in Stephens County.”

Funds raised will support our 14 partner agencies that include CASA of Southwest Oklahoma, Christians Concerned, Douglass East Side Senior Citizens Center, Duncan Area Literacy Council, Duncan Community Residence, Duncan Senior Citizens Center, Gabriel’s House, Girls Scouts, HeartLine 2-1-1, Legal Aid Services, Marie Detty Youth & Family Services, Marlow Samaritans, Safe Center and Velma Senior Citizens Center.

Contributions can be dropped off at its office at 12 S. 8th St., Suite 9 in Duncan or mailed to P.O. Box 1632, Duncan, OK  73534, by phone (580) 255-3648 or simply go online and make a donation at www.unitedwyaofsc.org.
