The Southeast Missouri Chapter of the United Way invested more than 800-thousand dollars last year in the community. The group services Cape Girardeau, Jackson and Scott City through funding for several agencies. United Way supports a three-fold vision of education, income and health. Through donation they spent 8-hundred-50-thousand dollars to help more than 46-thousand people. Executive Director Nancy Jernigan tells KZIM-KSIM it takes more than money to address the community problems. More than 30 agencies received funding from the United Way. Their 2012 campaign began in August and now is in full swing. You can learn more about their programs at unitedwayofsemo.org.
