In partnership with All In Credit Union, the Bee the Boss program teaches members business principles in owning, running and managing their own business.
All In Credit Union gives members a "loan" and they pick a different item each year to earn profit, learn how to operate the business, market their product, write the business plan and learn how to build and maintain a good credit. This year, Bee the Boss members sold color changing cups and raised over $600!!!
Members chose to donate their funds this year to the Ozark-Dale County Humane Society and Ozark Animal Control Shelter!
Each year, the Wiregrass Foundation has made a Challenge Grant pledge to the Wiregrass United Way--if they reach their yearly fundraising goal, they will award the WUW with an additional $400,000 to give to their partnering agencies.
The Wiregrass Foundation Challenge Grant money is used by agencies to fund capital improvement items & projects. This grant money does not replace the monthly allocations agencies receive on a monthly basis-this is in a sense, "bonus money" they can use to make improvements.
This year we were awarded funds to replace the carpet with laminate flooring in our portable classroom, and we LOVE it!! Thank you Wiregrass United Way and Wiregrass Foundation for helping us make this happen!!
Thank you John Varney for the generous donation!! We truly appreciate your continued support of the Club!!

We are thankful to have the Infidels Motorcycle Club continued support!! They truly make up an important part in our Boys & Girls Club. We recieved a generous donation yesterday, and the kids LOVED seeing them ride in on their bikes. There are MANY that participated in the bike run that are not pictured. Also, we thank all of the sponsors that helped make this happen this year!!
Four Club Members/Peer Mentors traveled to Mystic, Connecticut this Summer for the Peer Leadership Academy. The PMLA was created to bring together cross-age peer mentors from STEM Mentoring program sites across the country. The objective of the PMLA is to increase leadership and relationship-building skills among participants — as well as to explore area environmental-stewardship opportunities — in order to enhance peer mentors’ impact and effectiveness when they return to their home sites.
Check it out, we were featured on the 2021 Wiregrass United Way Campaign Video!
