The Mountain City/Johnson County United Way is an ongoing strength of the community. Thanks to their support, the American Red Cross is able to be there when disaster strikes a family. We assisted 47 individuals affected by disaster last year. These neighbors and friends in our community required help with items such as food, clothing, shelter and support for medical and emotional needs.
2,351 people received educational materials with information for disaster preparedness and/or health and safety issues. Another 249 people were certified in CPR and First Aid following Red Cross courses.
As our volunteers, work to build a safer community we are proud of our partnership with the United Way that makes it all possible.
