Today UWSWA announced that Clifford Grimes will be the new President and CEO, effective September 24, 2015. Grimes has served as the CEO of Victoria County United Way since 2009, where he increased their campaign 42% in three years, and has accumulated nearly 30 years of experience with various United Ways across the nation. Grimes is succeeding Alan H. Turner II, who led the organization from 2011 until July of this year.

This month’s Volunteer of the Month has been credited, by the nominator, with being the “the epitome of UWSWA’s slogan ‘Live United.’”  Congratulations to Shelli Bell, our August Volunteer of the Month! Jessica James, Executive director of McKemie Place, nominated Shelli. McKemie place is the only overnight shelter for single, homeless women in all of Mobile, Washington and Baldwin Counties, and Jessica describes Shelli as “the most valuable volunteer in the history of McKeme Place.”

This month’s Volunteer of the Month is special to us, as it comes from within our own office. Brad Martin, Program Coordinator for United Way of Southwest Alabama nominated this month’s Volunteer of the Month based on her high level of commitment to helping others and enriching the community. It is our pleasure to congratulate Alice Skelton, our July Volunteer of the Month!

Hurricane season has begun! The season is predicted to be an uneventful one, but it only takes one storm landing in our area to cause lasting damage.
