United Way in need of volunteers

Thursday, October 8, 2009

TERRE HAUTE -- The United Way of the Wabash Valley is looking for volunteers to help evaluate how best to distribute campaign donor dollars to meet the human service needs in the Wabash Valley.

Volunteers are needed to serve as members of the review teams during the 2010 agency program funding review process.

Volunteers who serve on the UWWV review teams recommend to the United Way Community Impact Committee and, ultimately, to the United Way Board of Directors, how the funds raised in the United Way campaign should be used for the greatest benefit to the people of the Wabash Valley, and how the money should actually be distributed to more than 90 health and human service programs of the United Way partner agencies.

The time commitment for participation in this year's review process is early January through mid-February. During this period, volunteers will meet five or six times, usually for two hours per session.

All meetings take place in the early evening. Some extra time will also be necessary to visit an agency and their appropriate health and human service program(s).

All United Way donors are eligible to serve on the review teams.

Approximately 80 volunteers are needed for this process.

United Way of the Wabash Valley's partner agencies and their health and human service programs cover six counties of the Wabash Valle, including Clay, Parke, Sullivan, Vermillion and Vigo in Indiana and Clark County in Illinois.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Mark Johnson, Community Impact Director, at 812-235-6287 Ext. 15, by e-mail at mark.johnson@unitedway.org, or by writing to the United Way of the Wabash Valley at PO Box 3094, Terre Haute, Ind., 47803.
