BONIFAY — Regional Director of Resource Development at United Way of Northwest Florida Ron Sharpe was the guest speaker for the Bonifay Kiwanis Club on Jan. 23 and touched on the many services provided in Holmes County and what United Way does to help fund those services.

“First I need to recognize some local volunteers that help us with United Way,” said Sharpe.

Julia Bullington with the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce, Melissa Willard with Regions Bank, Fran Haithcoat with Wells Fargo and Brenda Blitch from Doctors Memorial Hospital.

“What we have are individuals are a group of volunteers who help us raise the awareness of United Way agencies in our community,” he said. “One of the most important tasks that they do is funds and distributions.”

Through United Way, said Sharpe, they raise money for the 31 agencies that serve the needs of Holmes County’s community.

“Money that is given or donated to United Way for Holmes County,” he said. “That is something that I absolutely love about United Way. The dollars stay local.”

You can give personally or through your employer, said Sharpe.
