Join us in the fight against summer hunger. A donation of $15 can provide food support to a family for a month through the United Way Food Drop. Each month 190 Douglas and 75 Pope County families depend on the United Way Food Drop for food support. Our goal is to raise $8,000 by June 28th. Allowing us to serve approximately 265 families between Douglas and Pope Counties for the following two months through the Food Drop.
