United Way of Southwest Alabama’s (UWSWA) Board of Trustees recently approved investing more than $2.18M annually in 2016 and 2017 to support local programs and services that address key issues in the areas of health, education, financial stability, and essentials.

This process starts with local non-profit health and human service organizations applying to become United Way Partner Agencies; partners may then apply for program funding.  This process is designed to target and address major health and human service issues facing our region by funding programs that prove they are making a positive impact in our community.

United Way of Southwest Alabama (UWSWA) celebrated its twenty-first annual Day of Caring on Friday, April 17. Despite the rain, more than 500 employees from over 30 local companies participated in the region’s largest volunteerism event by spending a work day improving their community. While several outdoor projects were rescheduled for a later date due to inclement al power at wilmer hall 2weather, many of the projects went on as scheduled. Rain, apparently, is not these superheroes’ kryptonite.

We are excited to recognize our April Volunteer of the Month, who was nominated by Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama, one of United Way of Southwest Alabama’s newest partners. Congratulations to Royce Ray for being selected as our Volunteer of the Month!

In front of an audience of roughly 300 community leaders, volunteers, supporters, and other community partners at United Way of Southwest Alabama’s annual meeting and campaign celebration, Don Keeler, the 2014 Campaign Chairman and Vice Presdient of Human Resources at Austal USA announced that for the third year in a row, United Way of Southwest Alabama’s (UWSWA) campaign achieved an increase.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has made a profound mark on the world we live in today. He is the only non-president to have a national holiday dedicated in his honor—created by an act of Congress in 1983— and the only non-president memorialized in the Mall in Washington, DC.  In 1994, Congress designated MLK Day a national day of service, the sole federal holiday observed in this way.
