The United Way of Davie County is looking to merge with other United Way agencies.

The move came after Chuck Taylor resigned last month as executive director, and board members voted to seek a merger to lessen operational expenses, but provide more funds to agencies.

“As we all know, we have been experiencing an economic downturn since 2021, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and labor shortage,” board chair Gloria Wommack said. “Now, it is 2022 and we are still in the throes of higher prices and an inflationary economy. Mergers have been commonplace in for-profit businesses and are now a necessity to thrive in the non-profit world.”

The office remains open at 189 Gaither St. in Mocksville, 336-751-0313.

“The United Way of Davie County will continue to serve our community and collect funds pledged to meet our financial commitments to our partner agencies,” she said.
