On Wednesday, March 2, UWGCM hosted our
Candy Land Campaign Thank You Luncheon and Annual Meeting
. United Way supporters came from all parts of Galveston County to help us celebrate the wonderful news that we reached our 2016 Campaign Goal! Because of your support, we are able to fully fund each of our approved programs from
31 Partner Agencies
who are directly improving Education, Health and Income Stability in Galveston County!
UWGCM President Connie Bradley and Vice President Willie Windham, with help from UWGCM Treasurer Bruce Clawson and Executive Director Chris Delesandri (aka King Kandy), recapped the milestones that we reached in 2015 and recognized the Companies and Employees who were extra "sweet" to United Way this past year!
