United Way of Susquehanna County Community Volunteers Evaluate & Determine Partner Agency Allocation Funding Allowance
The United Way of Susquehanna County (UWSC) recently completed its allocation process. With the help of many community volunteers who came together to serve, thoughtful decisions were made as to where to invest generous donor dollars given to the UWSC to distribute to its 23 partner agencies. UWSC funds vital programs that serve those most vulnerable and at risk in our community. A dedicated group came together over the course of several weeks to evaluate the effectiveness of agencies and the programs they were seeking funding for through UWSC. Special thanks go out to the following individuals who generously gave of their time, talent and expertise to help make these important community decisions:
-Bob Welch-Retail Market Manager, Pennstar Bank and United Way of Susquehanna County Advisory Board Chairman
-Terri Allen-CPA, Johnson, Lauder and Savidge and United Way of Susquehanna County Advisory Board Treasurer
-Alice Davis, Ph.D., Administrative Director, Susquehanna County Career and Technology Center and United Way of Susquehanna County Advisory Board Secretary
-Joel Levy-Community Volunteer and Allocation Committee Chairman
-Karl Kail-retired businessman and Community Volunteer
-Frank Dresser-retired businessman and Community Volunteer
-Tammy Bonnice-Williams Company, LLC, United Way of Susquehanna County Advisory Board member
-Kathy Tuttle-Keystone College and Advisory Board member
“I am grateful to have had the privilege to serve and act as a steward of the community’s generous giving to the United Way of Susquehanna County.” I was inspired by the stories of lives positively impacted with the help of partner agencies said Mr. Welch.
With support from all sectors of the community, our partner agencies stand ready to serve and deliver essential programming offering a hand up to those in need. The majority of donor dollars are directed to agencies providing essential services such as food, shelter, heating assistance and clothing while a portion of allocable dollars go towards basic and community services that offer educational, cultural and recreation services as well as programs dedicated towards the preservation of the environment and community development.
UWSC will continue to work towards enhancing the Health, Education and Financial Stability outcomes of the residents in Susquehanna County. Your generous financial support is greatly appreciated. Please visit unitedwayofsusquehannacounty.org to donate or volunteer.
