How to Give

Donate

How much to give is always a personal decision. The United Way of Gentry was formed with the giving idea of one dollar a week. As simple as it sounds, if everyone in the Gentry school district gave one dollar a week, we would raise over $300,000 each year. If you choose to give you can print out the pledge card, fill it out and mail to:

United Way of Gentry Arkansas
PO Box 425
Gentry, AR 72734
.


Thank you for your consideration.
