United Way of McPherson County is working to build a stronger community by addressing issues related to health, education and income. We believe conversations and intensive listening are the best ways to understand the real problems and move beyond short-term solutions. Community change can be accomplished through broad participation and collaboration. We encourage McPherson County residents to be involved with their community through giving, advocating and volunteering. By working together we can make a larger impact on the issues at hand.

My favorite color of M&M is green. Yes, I know the chocolate coated candy tastes the same no matter what color one eats, but I really can't resist the green ones! I gained a new appreciation for all M&Ms after learning about their history. In 1941, Bruce Murrie who was the son of the famed Hershey president was hired by Forrest Mars Sr., founder of the Mars candy factory. Anticipating a chocolate shortage after World War II, Mars knew he needed Hershey's chocolate to produce the candy. Murrie received a 20 percent stake from the newly discovered M&M candy. When chocolate rationing ended, the stake was bought out by Mars. But the candy's name remained M&M for "Mars and Murrie!"
