Live Here, Give Here: United Way begins campaign

Published 9:48 am Thursday, November 5, 2015

The United Way of Davie County has launched a grassroots effort to push the annual giving campaign to the next level – “Live Here Give Here.”

During November, local businesses and individuals are encouraged to support partner agencies that serve Davie County. Give here because you live here.

Two local businesses signed on for this new initiative.

Honor Darling, a clothing boutique in Downtown Mocksville, has designated November as “Live Here Give Here”  with special events.

Subway of Mocksville will also participate on Tuesday, Nov, 17 and will donate five percent of net sales to the United Way of Davie County.

The overall goal is to increase overall awareness in the community for the United Way of Davie County.  A few other goals we have for the effort include:

• Have a total of at least 10 local businesses participate. Ideas include hosting an employee campaign, donate proceeds or offer customers the opportunity support the United Way of Davie County;

• Have a total of 500 new individual givers – the reason for this goal is not about the amount of the gift, but the level of participation in the community as a whole.
