Hello Emerging Leader Members,
As your new Steering Committee Chair, I was looking forward to seeing so many of you at our already scheduled events and annual celebration! I want to take this time to share with you our current updates and plan for the unforeseeable future.
Like many of you, I always enjoy the opportunity to leave the office a little early and give back to the many funded SEUW agencies with hands-on volunteering. Unfortunately, until further notice, all of our in-person events have been cancelled or postponed, including our annual event in May. As social distancing becomes less of a concern, we will keep you updated on our plan moving forward.
Even during these unprecedented times, our agency partners are still in need of our volunteer efforts. As these opportunities arise, we will continue to share them with you through our Facebook private group. If you have not joined our Facebook group yet, please let us know. We will continue to send out monthly and, as needed, weekly updates. Beginning shortly, we will be releasing a series of virtual lunch and learn sessions with our agency partners that you can register for in advance. These sessions have been a huge success in the past and have allowed our members the opportunity to better understand our funded programs and how your United Way donation makes an impact. During these sessions the program directors will explain their program and give an update on the impact of COVID-19. We are also asking them to share with us what we can do for them during this time.
I hope you will join us on our virtual lunch and learn sessions to stay engaged. When things begin to be more normal, all of our agencies are going to need our help!
Please feel free to reach out to myself or Annie Wold if you have an unmet need, want to learn more about a program, or have any other ideas for our group to stay engaged.
