United Way short of goals  “This is the beginning of a new year and an end to a difficult year. The United Way of Stephens County is working hard to support local agencies and partners and, in turn, the community has been working hard to support the United Way,” Executive Director Helen Stewart said. “We have had new donors and some donors increase their regular giving, it has been incredibly heart- warming to witness the generosity of members in our community and their continued support of us even in a pandemic, but some business partners remain closed which makes reaching our goal harder this year.”  Funds donated to the United Way are divided among its partner agencies: CASA of SW Oklahoma, Christians Concerned, Douglass East Side Senior Citi- zens, Duncan Area Literacy Council, Duncan Senior Citizens Center, Gabriel’s House Academy, Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma, Heartline 211, Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma, Marie Detty Youth and Family Services, Marlow Samari- tans, Safe Center and Velma Senior Citizens Center. These agencies serve the most vulnerable and in-need Stephens County residents, from children to people escaping domestic violence to the elderly.  “They are experiencing a loss of income and struggling with fundraisers due to COVID,” Stewart said. “This loss comes during a time where the need for assis- tance is heightened due to people losing their job or simply couldn’t work because of COVID.”  Therefore, the United Way’s fundraising efforts have increased to help make their goal to better help their agencies. But 2020 was such a wild ride, that the UW adapted to a virtual singing competition fundraiser. It proved to be very successful and will be continued annually. Much of the organization’s funding comes from an- nual events that bring in a reliable amount of money like the BBQ Showdown and employee campaigns at local businesses & schools, in which employees pledge a certain percentage of their paycheck as a donation to United Way of Stephens County.  “We appreciate them all working hard and continuing to support us, even if some campaigns are lower this year as expected, we are fortunate that they fol- lowed through with their contributions.” Stewart said.  “We are keeping our hopes alive for the rest of our 2020-2021 fundraising season, that our goal will be met and our agencies will be able to receive their al- located monies in order to continue to serve their clients in need,” Administrative Assistant Jana Marks said. “As of Wednesday, the United Way was still around 75% of their $275,000 goal for 2021,” she said. We are currently asking the public to help by continuing to financially support the United Way of Stephens County. No amount is too small. When we all UNITE together, we can make a difference!”    Find ways to donate at or call our office at 580-255-3648 for more information. 580-786-4717 Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for Daily Specials and Menu Monday: Lasagna with Salad and Bread Tuesday: Fiesta Power Bowl or Beans and Ham with Cornbread Wednesday: Twice Baked Potato with Salad and bread Thursday: Taco Salad (beef or chicken) Friday: Pulled Pork Tacos with Salad, Chips, Salsa, and Guacamole We cater any size event.
