The United Way of Ellis County started its parade season with changes as seen in last week’s TMP homecoming parade.

This year, UWEC has a simple float with the banners of UWEC member agencies. That is to show “Uniting our Community” and bring awareness of the 2015 Campaign. The “Pumpkin Packers” were active in the parade helping to raise more money than last year. Also new is the QR code being handed out for donation through any “smart” device.

Have your change ready or smart device at the Hays High School homecoming parade Friday and watch for the United Way of Ellis County float and those “Pumpkin Packers” to make a donation.
