Rutherford / Cannon Counties, TN — The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties (UWRCC) announces its inaugural three-day giving campaign, called GIVE UNITED, taking place on September 27, 28 and 29.

UWRCC aims to raise $200,000 during the Give United campaign to face the biggest challenges in Rutherford and Cannon counties around childhood development, financial stability, mental health, substance abuse, and healthy behaviors like nutrition and obesity. Donors can designate their gift to one of these focus areas, or to the general community fund for the greatest impact.


“Give United is an opportunity to bring members of our community together to support the most pressing challenges we face. Issues such as mental health, housing affordability, meeting basic needs, and early childhood success are all important to the Bold Goals 2030, a ten-year strategic vision developed by the community, for the community. We invite you to join us in making a gift that is meaningful to you that will influence our measurable impact on each of these issues,” shares United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties’ CEO, Meagan Flippin.

For every $1 invested in the operation of your local United Way, $14 of impact is put back into our community. A gift to United Way benefits the health, education, and financial stability of everyone in our community.
