Donate a dollar at local grocery stores to help United Way program

Email News Alerts

A dollar may not seem like much. But pooling together those dollars from everyone throughout the community for a month can make a big difference in the lives of other people.


That's the goal of a new March campaign launched by the United Way of Pope and Douglas Counties.

It's called "Change a Lot."

United Way is teaming up with Tom's Food Pride, Marthaler Chevrolet, Elden's Fresh Foods, and Pete's County Market
