Pictured from left are Dee Hammond, President of the Scotland County United Way; Debbie Grant, Executive Director; and Althea Simpson, General Manager/Revenue Director of the Laurinburg Exchange, who is presenting a check in the amount of $500 to Margaret Lytch Dickerson, 2014 Chair of the Scotland County United Way. The funds donated represent a percentage of the proceeds from the 2013-14 Community Directory, given as a thank you for the United Way’s sponsorship of the directory published by the Laurinburg Exchange in October.

Donations to the United Way reach 19 partner agencies, including the Red Cross, Church Community Services, Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Center, Habitat for Humanity, Scotland County 4-H and Scotland Family Counseling Center.
