The United Way of Chatham County concluded its annual campaign at the end of December, and we are pleased to announce that Fearrington raised $132,453 in donations, exceeding its goal of $128,000! Residential campaigns like Fearrington’s provide close to 80% of monies raised by the county’s campaign. These funds support numerous well-designed programs to help families, children and seniors improve their education, health and financial stability.

We are proud that Fearrington residents are exceptionally generous supporters of the United Way and extend our sincerest “thank you” to the many Fearringtonians who contributed to the annual campaign and to the United Way COVID-19 Relief Fund last spring. Our appreciation is also extended to those who volunteer their time and talent to United Way and other Chatham organizations, with special gratitude to our 2020 United Way neighborhood captains.
