Recap of recent Leadership Breakfast in Gleneden Beach
Along with investment in community resources like 2-1-1-a free referral line connecting people to the help they need, United Way’s annual grants program was discussed. The 2011 funding cycle was completed in June with a volunteer granting committee making awards to six agency programs totaling over $25,000. Local programs receiving funding are: Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Lincoln County, Centro de Ayuda, Coastal Range Food Bank, Lincoln County Food Share, Operation Snackpacks, and the Retired Senior and Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Lincoln County.
United Way recognizes that community support is vital. The annual campaign is actively underway and will continue through the end of December, though donations are accepted year-round. United Way operates on the premise of “one ask on behalf of many,” raising dollars to help more than just one person or one issue. All the money raised in Lincoln County supports Lincoln County service agencies addressing the needs of people living and working in the local community. Anyone interested in more information about how to give to or get involved with United Way should contact Katelyn Hordichok, Area Representative for Lincoln County United Way, at 541-265-5812 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
