Updated: Sep 15, 2020

We are grateful to United Way of Northeast Mississippi for not only their financial support, but also for the many resources and individuals they have connected Mission Okolona with over the years.

To say that our nonprofit food pantry could not do what we do without the support of United Way of Northeast Mississippi (UWNEMS) is a matter of fact. From ensuring that our shelves are filled with food to providing us with workshops and introducing us to a network of corporations and other food pantries who benefit us in many ways, Mission Okolona has been truly blessed to have the continued support of UWNEMS.

They do this by investing in programs and agencies that further the common good in the impact areas of Academic Success, Family Stability, and Health & Wellness. They also look for opportunities to convene community stakeholders around the big issues that affect all of us and to find innovative solutions to these community problems.
