United Way to highlight opiate treatment and student volunteer program at Annual Meeting
AUGUSTA - United Way of Kennebec Valley (UWKV) will host its Annual Meeting on Thursday, Feb. 2 at the Augusta Civic Center from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Local businesses, nonprofit agencies, government leaders and contributors are invited to attend.
During the program, Emilie van Eeghen, MBA, chief behavioral health officer for MaineGeneral Health, will provide a presentation titled “Responding to the Opiate Epidemic in Central Maine,” a community issue that many of UWKV’s partner programs address. In addition, Gary Carter, an English teacher at Richmond Middle/High School, will share his school’s experience with Day of Caring, a UWKV initiative that matches student volunteers with local work projects in 18 area schools.
Campaign Co-Chairs Scott and Laura Fossett of A Partner in Technology will summarize results of the 2016 fundraising campaign. United Way will also provide a report on its successful Food Pantry Project, which hosted food bank collection shelves at 35 local businesses last year.
The breakfast meeting will include recognition of outstanding community volunteers with the Norm Temple Award, appreciation of committee chairs and retiring Board members, and election of United Way officers and leaders for 2017. Craig Garofalo, vice president and senior operations officer at Kennebec Savings Bank, will assume UWKV’s board chair position.
The $10 breakfast fee is payable at the door. Contact 207-626-3400 or firstname.lastname@example.org to attend. To learn more about United Way, visit uwkv.org.
