STILLWATER — The United Way of Washington County East (UWWCE) is seeking volunteers to help serve on a panel of community leaders for its upcoming Community Investment Process. Early each calendar year, approximately 40 volunteers are selected to help make important funding decisions on behalf of the community in support of agencies that are making a significant local impact.

At the heart of United Way’s mission is a partnership with local volunteers. These Community Investment Process volunteers are a part of an important strategic business structure because they make funding recommendations to support agencies in the area. Volunteer groups will meet from 5-8 p.m. March 12 and again on April 9.

Last year, the United Way of Washington County East granted $678,000 to 21 partnering agencies that supported programs connected with the following focus areas:

• Youth: Promote thriving children and youth

• Basic needs: Provide basic needs and financial stability

• Health: Improve health and independence

• Self-sufficiency: Support self-sufficiency and connection to services

Interested individuals should call Lois Raboin at 651-439-3838 (ext. 1) for more information.
