The generosity and involvement of local businesses in our community are the driving force for the success of the Habersham County United Way. These Community Partners give in so many ways and we couldn't accomplish our mission without their continued support. Thank you to the following businesses for allowing their employees to participate in a volunteer capacity with the United Way, for financial support of the annual campaign, or for encouraging employees to give annually through payroll deductions. Many of these do all 3! We are blessed to be part of such a giving and caring community!
