Volunteers needed for United Way allocation team

Staff Writer

    Each year United Way of Adams County relies on Volunteer Grant Funding (allocation) team members to help make decisions regarding which community programs will be a good investment of United Way dollars. Team members increase program accountability to donors of United Way by requiring agencies to define how donor funds will be spent.

    In April, volunteers convene to discuss agency allocation requests and determine whether funds requested will be a good investment of United Way dollars. The allocation panel will be chaired by a volunteer who will guide participants through the process.

    The 2018 Volunteer Grant Funding (allocation) team of United Way of Adams County is currently being formed. This committee plays a vital part in the fulfillment of United Way’s mission. By participating on the committee, not only will you meet other volunteers, but you will also become more aware of services provided by a few of our agencies.

    Volunteering has never been easier. This year’s interviews will take place the week of April 16. Those interested in volunteering may call the United Way office at 728-2056 no later than March 2.
