Campaign Leaders Welcome Challenge to LIVE UNITED

Community volunteers drive the United Way! The annual fund raising drive is headed by volunteer campaign leaders and coordinated by a team of volunteers assigned to particular individuals and businesses in the community. Volunteers pass out the campaign information to their neighbors and co-workers and solicit the return of donations and pledges.

The distribution of the amount raised starts with Citizens Review Panels, comprised of over 50 local United Way donors, who hear the funding requests from the agencies supported by the United Way, and who make recommendations for distribution of the funds. The United Way Board of Directors, again community volunteers, reviews the panel recommendations, and adjusts them if necessary as budget considerations require. The Board oversees the operations and expenses of the United Way, making sure that it serves its intended purpose.

Thank you to our many community volunteers who make United Way truly a community organization!
