United Way of the Greater Winona Area is seeking volunteers for its fund distribution process. This is the process by which money raised during the United Way campaign is invested in human service programs that meet the needs of people in our community. Volunteers meet with agencies, study their funding requests, evaluate their budget and program offerings, and make funding recommendations to United Way's Board of Directors.
All volunteers are asked to attend a training session on Thursday, March 16 (11:30 - 1:00) and a final session where recommendations are made on Tuesday, April 18 (9:00 - 1:00). Beyond that, volunteers may pick any or all of the following panels:
Tuesday, April 11, 1:00 - 4:30 p.m. - Providing basic needs
(Access to food, housing, interpreter services, emergency services and other basic supplies)
Wednesday, April 12, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. - Nurturing Children
(Youth development, mentoring, support for at-risk children and youth)
Thursday, April 13, 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. - Fostering Independence
