United Way setting up advisory group for donations

TERRE HAUTE — United Way of the Wabash Valley is looking for volunteers to help evaluate how best to distribute campaign donor dollars to meet the pressing human service needs in the Wabash Valley. the agency said in a press release.

Volunteers would serve as members of the review teams during the 2014 agency program funding review process. Those volunteers recommend to the United Way Community Impact Committee and, ultimately, to the United Way Board of Directors, how the funds raised in the United Way campaign should be used to the greatest benefit for the people of the Wabash Valley. Specifically, volunteers would suggest how the money should be distributed to more than 60 health and human service programs of the United Way partner agencies.

The time commitment for participation in this year’s review process is early January through mid-February. During that period, volunteers would meet five or six times, usually for two hours per session. All meetings are held in the early evening. Some extra time would also be necessary to visit agencies and their appropriate health and human service programs.

All United Way donors are eligible to serve on the review teams. Approximately 80 volunteers are needed for this process.

United Way of the Wabash Valley’s partner agencies and their health and human service programs cover six counties of the Wabash Valley: Clay, Parke, Sullivan, Vermillion and Vigo in Indiana and Clark in Illinois.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Mark Johnson, community impact director, at 812-235-6287, extension 205; by email at mark.johnson@local.united; or by mail to the United Way of the Wabash Valley at 2901 Ohio Blvd., Suite 215, Terre Haute, IN 47803.
