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

Individuals interested in serving on a United Way committee are also encouraged to attend an Open House from 5-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 15, at United Way's offices, at 3120 McDougall Ave., Ste. 200 in Everett.

In addition to funding 107 programs through 40 agencies focusing 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.
