Greenville: The United Way of Washington County (UWWC) Allocation Committee held their meeting with the eleven agencies to discuss their plan of actions, budgets, and community needs. The all-volunteer Allocations Committee is made up of local community members working to ensure that dollars raised for the agencies are spent wisely.
The following agencies are partially funded by the United Way of Washington County: American Red Cross Northwest Chapter, Boys & Girls Club of Washington County, Community Counseling Center, Delta Health System-The Medical Center Medication Assistance Program, Delta Kidney Foundation, Girl Scouts Heart of The South, Greenville Renaissance Scholars, Hodding Carter Memorial YMCA, Mississippi Delta and Nature Learning Center, The Fuller Center for Housing - Leland, and United Way Housing Initiative.
Nathan Benzing, UWWC Executive Director, said, “The allocation process is extremely important and plays a vital role in the United Way funding process. The process gives the UWWC Allocations Committee the opportunity to ask necessary questions concerning funding, budgets, scope of work, and mission accomplishments of all our agencies. We have a responsibility to our donors and this committee plays an integral role in the UWWC fulfilling that responsibility. Our community is fortunate to have these eleven agencies and the UWWC volunteers who are committed to the organization’s success. The hearings are what sets the United Way apart from other fundraising organizations. If an individual agency is a UWWC partner, you know they have met a high standard of management and responsibility, not only to the United Way but to their local community as well.”
The United Way of Washington County is located at 800 Main Street, Greenville, MS. For more information, contact 662.332.5371, visit our website, or check out our Facebook page.
