April 6th through April 12th, 2014 has been declared as National Volunteer Week. As your local United Way, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you, the countless volunteers who help us throughout the year. You are truly special individuals giving of your time and talents, helping us on our mission to "advance the common good."
UWGAT is fortunate to have individuals supporting our community by volunteering to serve on such committees as: the Board of Directors, Incorporators, Community Allocation Panels, South Coast Regional Network to End Homelessness (SOCO), and other initiative based Coalitions. Also we appreciate the internal support and volunteerism, at UWGAT events and within our administration. We are also thankful to local area businesses that support our year-round "Days of Caring" by adopting special projects for organizations within our community.
Volunteers make a significant difference and are typically the communities' unsung heroes. Whether you give an hour or give a day, you give your best! We would like to say thank you for volunteering to improve your community. By giving your time, you are creating opportunities for a better life for all. Thank you for reaching out a hand to one and influencing the condition of all.
Days of Caring
UWGAT’s Days of Caring is away for local businesses and organizations to volunteer at a community agency for a specific community service project. UWGAT facilitates Days of Caring by collecting projects and pairing volunteers with agencies.
The South Coast Regional Network to End Homelessness in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Veterans’ Services are hosting a FREE forum to discuss and better understand the emerging best practices in preventing and ending homelessness among veterans in Bristol County.
The forum will allow the opportunity to learn about current policies and services available for Veterans, as well as, opportunities to share and brainstorm ideas to strengthen collaborations between homeless service providers and Veteran Service Officers throughout the area.
The forum is geared specifically to Bristol County Veteran Service Officers, Homeless Program Case Managers, Veteran Program Specialists, and any other programs that provide services to Veterans and their families.
This is a FREE event, however, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
