The United Way of Chatham County has partnered with residents of Carolina Meadows to help prepare its annual campaign mailing. 

Carolina Meadows residents will be stuffing envelopes for one of United Way’s large neighborhood campaigns. 

Residents of Carolina Meadows will be hosting an early Day of Service project (in August) to assist Salvation Army with back-to-school supplies and backpacks. 

On the Day of Service, Carolina Meadows residents will be hosting an on-site project assisting United Way with fall campaign materials. 

We appreciate our ongoing partnership with Carolina Meadows and their residents and staff who support those in need in Chatham County!
