United Way is a great way to help those less fortunate.


I make contributions of time and hard-earned money to an organization when it supports an important cause, is pragmatic and shrewd in executing its plan, makes the most of my gifts, treats employees and volunteers with respect, and uses the power of photography to promote its mission.  United Way of Southwest Virginia and Feeding Southwest Virginia do all this and more.

Today there are many children in the area who do not receive the proper nutrition to succeed in school. Backpacks Unite is a program that delivers nutritious healthy food to students over the weekend.

Feeding Southwest Virginia now conducts this vital program.


Here are some snapshots of the United Way Staff, Pleasant View Church members, Emory & Henry College students, Leadership Giving Society board members and Volunteers  getting the food packed and ready to deliver.
