An organization that strives to improve lives cuts the ribbon on a new facility. The Etowah County United Way has moved from Fourth Street to the former Alabama Department of Revenue Building on College Street in Gadsden. The new facility is bigger, and United Way Board of Directors President Shane Ellison says they have the community to thank.
United Way has a long tradition of using donations to give back to the community. The Etowah County United Way serves several cities and provides more than 50 services and programs. Ellison says the goal is to focus on education, financial stability, health, and providing a safety net for those who need it.
