United Way invites community members to share their expertise on committees

United Way of Snohomish County, a community impact organization that has served Snohomish County for more than 70 years with a special focus on local health and human services, is looking for volunteers to serve on several important internal committees.

United Way relies on volunteers to set funding priorities, allocate program grants, provide administrative oversight and build its annual legislative agenda.

Volunteers are currently needed to serve on its Audit Committee, Board of Directors, Marketing Committee, Public Policy Committee, Kids Matter Vision Council, Families Matter Vision Council, Community Matters Vision Council, and Endowment and Planned Giving Committee.

More information and a Volunteer Inquiry Form are available online at www.uwsc.org/committees.php. United Way staff members will review the volunteer inquiries and schedule interviews with eligible applicants.

Potential volunteers are also encouraged to attend an open house at United Way's offices in Suite 200 at 3120 McDougall Ave. in Everett on Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 6-7:30 p.m.

In addition to funding 102 programs through 39 agencies with a special focus on local health and human services, United Way of Snohomish County supports a number of initiatives focusing on early learning and education, financial stability for families, a youth program, North Sound 211 and an emerging initiative in survival English.
