The organization celebrated accomplishments from last year and set out plans for 2014.
Dollars raised in 2013 helped address red flag priority issues in the Ozarks.
"It just is a great example of how the community comes together, not just once a year not but 365 days a year to give back to our community,” says United Way of the Ozarks President Jennifer Kennally.
United Way plans to raise more than $4 million in 2014.
The organization has been around for more than 80 years.
