United Way aids 15 nonprofits

(Continued)

Over 80 volunteers completed 22 projects during the October Day of Caring. Hoog said, “We helped elderly people in their homes. We raked leaves, cleaned out flower beds, flipped mattresses, moved summer furniture to basements and helped a lot of people get their houses in order for the winter. We were very lucky to have so many volunteers.” The day was coordinated by Bulmer and O’Bryan. UWFC also partnered with Stayin’ Alive and Fayette Regional Health System on a fall health fair. “A lot of people attended that.”

Kids made snowflakes at the United Way table during November Noel. The annual Coats for Kids drive organized by Sara Duffy netted about 100 used coats, which were cleaned and given to disadvantaged children.

Of being one of UWFC’s leaders, Lierl said, “It’s a great way to serve the community. I thank you for the privilege of being on the board and being president.”

In addition to him, four other outgoing board members were applauded for their service: Joann Koch and student members Morgan Blades, Kelly McGill and Meagan Venneman. “I love clubs and community service,” reported Venneman. Being a part of United Way “has really helped me reach out.” Koch pointed out, “It’s a wonderful opportunity” to meet persons throughout the county. “If you’re asked to serve, please do.”

Lierl said in addition to attending monthly board meetings, new members usually are assigned to the allocations committee so they can learn about how the organization operates.
