Heart of Gold Community Volunteer Awards

OVERVIEW

The engagement of the hundreds of individuals who volunteer with us each year is critical to the success of both United Way of Southwest Alabama (UWSWA) and its 49 partner agencies.  Last year, the work of these volunteers was valued at more than a half a million dollars—money that was invested in programs and services that addressed our communities’ needs.

In 2018, UWSWA is proud to honor its volunteers with the Heart of Gold Award, which recognizes volunteers in four of UWSWA’s counties—Choctaw, Clarke, Mobile, and Washington—for their dedication and service.
