Wiregrass United Way and Screentech team up for Christmas fundraiser


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Wiregrass United Way is partnering with local agencies for a holiday fundraiser — ‘College Colors for Christmas’.

United Way has partnered with Screentech who made Christmas shirts of the three big colleges close to our hearts in the Wiregrass – Troy, Auburn, and Alabama. Over 20 companies have signed up to participate in the fundraiser.

Long-sleeved shirts are being sold for $20 with 40 % of the sales going toward the organization.

“The goal that Screentech is setting is to sell 50,000 and 40 percent of that is 20,000 dollars so 20,000 dollars added to our campaign is tremendous to our campaign especially now at this time of covid where we had some impact from that,” Wiregrass United Way CEO Walter Hill said.

If you buy a shirt, you’ll receive it a week before Christmas at the latest.
