Connecting Community Initiative

Strengthening Community Bonds Through Volunteerism and Collaboration

At United Way of Lewis County, we believe in the power of community to create lasting change. Our Connecting Community Initiative is dedicated to fostering volunteerism and enhancing collaboration among local organizations to address the needs of our community. As the lead convener for Lewis County Volunteerism and through our quarterly Partner in Impact Meetings, we bring together individuals and organizations committed to making a difference.

Lewis County Volunteerism

United Way of Lewis County serves as the central hub for volunteerism in our community, facilitating meaningful connections between volunteers and local organizations. Through our website, we provide a user-friendly platform where community members can find volunteer opportunities that align with their interests and skills. This platform helps match volunteers with organizations that need their support, ensuring a wide range of services are available to those in need.

Partner in Impact Meetings

Our quarterly Partner in Impact Meetings are a cornerstone of our collaborative approach to community support. These meetings aim to:

  • Foster Collaboration: Bringing together local organizations, businesses, and community leaders, we facilitate discussions on the most pressing issues facing our community. This collaborative environment encourages the sharing of ideas, resources, and best practices.
  • Align Efforts: Ensuring that all community partners are aligned in their efforts to support those in need, we work together to identify gaps in services and develop strategies to address them. This collective approach maximizes our impact and avoids duplication of efforts.
  • Measure and Celebrate Impact: Regularly reviewing the progress of our initiatives and celebrating the successes achieved, we keep our partners motivated and informed. This helps maintain momentum and ensures continuous improvement in our efforts to support the community.

Through the Connecting Community Initiative, United Way of Lewis County strengthens the bonds within our community, harnessing the power of volunteerism and collaboration to create a brighter future for all. Together, we can make a lasting impact and ensure that every family has the support they need to thrive.
