April showers bring May flowers!?

I hope you are staying dry out there—this week is bringing off and on rain showers but providing some much needed moisture for our area.  

If you haven’t had a chance yet, be sure to view our recent video and our ‘Year in Review’ publication.  The direct link to view them both is:   https://www.unitedwayswmn.org/AR2020

Community Impact Grants were due on April 1st.  Reviews by local volunteers will begin in early May with final funding decisions approved by our Board of Directors on June 21st.  

I have been connecting with the 10 communities that have a UWSWMN Born Learning Trail to find out if the sidewalk activities need to be re-painted.  Stay tuned for some fun pictures this spring of those projects taking place!

Save the date—National Volunteer Week is coming up on April 19-23.   We will be sharing some fun ideas and maybe a few fun contests to inspire you further to volunteer! Pictured are a couple of youth volunteers that picked up trash in their community during National Volunteer Week last year!

Make it a GREAT day!
