As we reflect on the journey of the United Way of Lowndes and Noxubee, we're filled with pride and gratitude for the incredible support from our community over the years. Our story began in 1954 under the name Columbus Lowndes Community Chest, with a vision to create positive change and support those in need.
In the 1970s, recognizing the growing scope of our impact, we evolved into the United Way Lowndes County. This change reflected our commitment to fostering collaboration and unity within our community.
Fast forward to 2019, we extended our services to Noxubee County, becoming the United Way of Lowndes and Noxubee. This expansion allowed us to broaden our reach, providing vital support to even more individuals and families in need.
A significant milestone unfolded in 2021, and we are thrilled to announce the extension of our services to four additional counties. This expansion represents a testament to the unwavering dedication of our community and the growing impact of the United Way.
Our commitment to improving lives, strengthening communities, and creating lasting change remains at the core of everything we do. As we continue to grow, we are excited about the opportunities to collaborate with diverse communities and make a positive impact across a wider geographic area.
Thank you for being an integral part of our history and journey. Together, we look forward to shaping a brighter future for all.
