United Way issues call for citizen-review volunteers

The United Way of Greater Augusta is looking for people interested in volunteering to review funding applications.

Funds from United Way are used to build community capacity in supporting individuals and families with immediate needs and establishing a foundation for long-term change. Through these funds, United Way will invest in projects and programs that address the priority areas of education, income and health.

Citizen Investment Review Team members review funding applications received and participate in agency site visits. Citizen Investment Review Team members make funding recommendations to the United Way Board of Directors on the organizations they review and visit.

This is a great way to be part the community solutions. If you are interested, you can apply through the Greater Augusta Volunteer Center. Each application will be reviewed for suitability and potential conflict of interest.

For additional information on other ways to volunteer for the United Way of Greater Augusta or get involved within the community, contact the United Way at 540.885.1229 or 540.943.1215 or visit the United Way online at www.unitedwaygaorg.
