Northwoods United Way Seeking Agencies To Fund
The Northwoods United Way is seeking human care agencies in Oneida, Vilas and Forest counties who are looking for funding. Executive Director Nancy Sattler says they want to talk to agencies meeting certain criteria...
"....right now we are funding 26 different agencies in the counties we serve. Everything from Departments on Aging, to homeless shelters to food pantries, to events for children and after school programs..."
Organizations need to show a need in the community and several other criteria, including providing basic needs and self sufficiency, promoting health, crisis intervention, and strengthening children, youth and families. Sattler says applications for funding need to be to the United Way office in Rhinelander by May 1.
