One of the big questions raised about the operation of the United Fund is...“Why doesn’t the United Fund stop all other campaigns?” The answer is because the United Fund is voluntary. No agency can be forced in, but any voluntary agency can join the United Fund if they want to...if they now raise funds and if their services are essential. Thus, if other organizations wanted to they could join the Fund. The eleven agencies of the Camden Area United Fund are: United Charities, Ouachita County Mental Health Assn. (Camden Family Counseling Center), Ouachita County Tuberculosis Assn., Camden Boys Club, TeenTown, Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of the USA, Fairview Community Center, Ira Clark Park and Youth Center, American Red Cross, and the USO. These eleven agencies provide services, aid to the indigent, hope to those who despair, medical services to those in need, and youth activities for the development of our younger generations. By giving the United Way we help make our community a better place...now and in the future.
