How the annual giving campaign meets community needs
Like a number of companies, ORAU kicked off its annual giving campaign. We invited Naomi Asher, executive director of the United Way of Anderson County to talk about the importance of the annual giving campaign as a fundraising mechanism and how UWAC and its partner agencies support some of the most basic needs in our communities. Also joining host Michael Holtz for this conversation are Jennifer Enderson from Emory Valley Center and Joey Collins from Aid to Families in Appalachian Counties. A little money goes a long way, as you'll hear in this conversation.
