It takes money to solve the Sikeston/Bootheel Area’s most critical issues. But, it also takes focus, creativeness, and willing hearts and hands to get results. It takes you and hundreds like you who donate valuable time, talent and treasure to build a stronger and safer community. To get results, United Way brings diverse people and resources together to address the issues you care about most: Education, Financial Stability, and Health.
Your donation is distributed by the Sikeston United Way to the 21 Community Agency Partners that work together to improve the core issues of education, income and health. By giving to United Way, you are helping fund a movement for a better tomorrow.
All donations are distributed locally to fund programs and services in Scott, New Madrid, Mississippi, Stoddard, and Butler counties. If everyone gives as they are able, together we can help a student receive a quality education that leads to a stable job, help hard-working families find stability, and help people of all ages adopt healthier lifestyles.
