United Way campaign celebration planned

United Way of North Mississippi will have a campaign celebration Friday, March 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the BancorpSouth Arena conference room, 375 East Main Street, Tupelo.

The celebration is to honor those who made the 2013 United Way Campaign a success by raising over $2.4 million for Northeast Mississippi.

Tickets for the celebration lunch are $10 per guest. They also request a canned or boxed food donation toward the organization’s Day of Caring food drive.

Guests at the Celebration are also invited to join in on the 2014 Day of Caring as organization members “Unite to End Hunger” across Northeast Mississippi. Teams from local businesses will be presenting food sculptures, built from canned and boxed foods. Celebration guests will vote for the best sculpture. After the celebration lunch, volunteers will pack the food items to distribute to United Way agencies who feed hungry families across seven counties.
