TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- The United Way of the Big Bend has a story to tell, and is inviting the community to help with that tale.

The United Way of the Big Bend partners with 39 area agencies to produce programs addressing basic needs concerns, like housing and hunger. UWBB is also leading the way with education initiatives, such as ReadingPals and Read United.

The money raised during the Community Campaign helps support these causes, and stays right here to improve the Big Bed.

Last year, the UWBB's campaign raised more than $4.6 million.
