On Friday, WHNT News 19 teamed up with the United Way of Madison County for a "Day of Action.”

WHNT News 19 hosted a phone bank to take donations for the United Way's $20by20 campaign.  The grand total: $82,988!  Thank you for your tremendous support.

The United Way of Madison County faces a $500,000 shortfall with this year's budget, and estimates if every person in Madison County makes a $20 donation by April 20, that would erase the shortfall.  If it doesn't meet the goal, 8,500 individuals stand to lose services.

If you didn't have a chance to call in Friday, you can also support The United Way of Madison County by making a donation online.  It is tax-deductible. Every contribution helps.

The United Way of Madison County serves many agencies, including:

  • The Caring House
  • Crisis Services of North Alabama
  • Christmas Charities Year Round
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters
  • HEALS, Inc.
  • Family Services Center
  • Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama
  • Girls Incorporated
  • Hospice Family Care
  • Heartof the Valley YMCA
  • CASA
  • The ARC of Madison County
