Each year, allocations volunteers study agency budgets and community needs and make difficult decisions about direct funding from United Way donors. These funds are used by organizations and programs working to improve local education, financial stability and health across the Mid-South. This work requires many meetings, and allocations volunteers give of their time to help our community.
Last night, United Way recognized this special group of volunteers with a reception held at SRVS dining hall. SRVS is a United Way partner nonprofit agency providing important services to people with developmental challenges. Both SRVS President Tyler Hampton and SRVS Chairman of the Board Anne Wesberry thanked the volunteers for their service to our community.
Volunteers learned more about United Way’s changing work under the Strategic Plan process from Senior Vice President of Community Engagement and Alignment Regina Walker and President Bryce Haugsdahl, and were thanked for their “priceless” service during a presentation led by Community Impact Director Nidia Logan.
Entertainment was provided by teens in the Sones de mi Pueblo Mexican Ballet, who put on a wonderful show rich in color and talent.
