WEAKLEY COUNTY



 

Weakley County ran their first ever campaign in 1986 and since that time has gone on to raise over $3 Million. There is a local Advisory Board responsible for overseeing the raising and investing of dollars into the community.

We are dependent on over 23 companies, organizations and government entities that run annual campaigns with their employees to raise funds. With these companies and other individuals that give directly we have over 850 people that annually give to the campaign. It is because of this generosity that we are able to reach out and lift up the Weakley community through local programs that are getting amazing results and making a positive impact on the needs of our neighbors, co-workers and family members.
