United Way announces funding for local agencies

United Way serving Linn, Benton and Lincoln counties has announced that it will make a $26,000 commitment to fund nine local community programs and initiatives across Lincoln County.

The list of recipients include:

  • CASA of Lincoln County
  • Centro de Ayuda
  • Children’s Advocacy Center
  • Coastal Range Food Bank, Inc.
  • Lincoln City Warming Shelter
  • Newport Food Pantry
  • Oregon Cascades West Council of Governments Senior Service Foundation
  • Yachats Youth & Family Activities Program

United Way’s partners are selected through an application process that utilizes trained volunteers. This year, United Way received 11 applications for funding.

“We are so blessed to have these wonderful nonprofit organizations in Lincoln County,” said Randy Getman, United Way Community Impact Chair for Lincoln County. “I know these awards will help bring meaningful change, to make our county a better place for everyone, and keep our communities connected.”

The nine community programs receiving funding will partner with United Way to provide resources to families in need, increase academic success for youth and young adults, and advocate for our area’s most vulnerable population.

United Way’s work is supported by the generosity of foundations, companies and thousands of individual donors. Dollars raised by United Way are invested back into the communities in which they are raised.
