Application period remains open for United Way of Stephens County

STEPHENS COUNTY, OK (KSWO)- Applications remain available for local agencies and organizations that are interested in becoming part of the United Way of Stephens County for 2018-19 until Dec. 15, 2017.

“We encourage local groups to explore and evaluate possibilities of joining us,” Ed Darling, executive director of the umbrella agency that supports 14 partner agencies,” said. “Linking the solid work of service-oriented organizations only serves to make us all stronger and more efficient.”

Typically, agencies are in the people-helping-people business and address basic needs like food, shelter and clothing, children and youth programs, counseling and referral services, development services and senior citizen programs and activities.

An allocations committee, composed of United Way board members and community volunteers, will evaluate all proposals, tour prospective agencies and discuss possibilities with agency leaders.

Agencies selected for funding for the 2018-19 year will be announced in early March.

The United Way office is located at 12 South 8th Street, Suite 9. Its phone number is (580) 255-3648.
