Thanks from United Way

On behalf of the Kenai Peninsula United Way I would like to thank all those who helped with our Allocations Process. We were honored to have a total of 20 citizens to form the allocations committee this year. Some of you came from Homer and Seward and we appreciate the time it took away from your everyday routine to help us with this process. If you see any of these people in your community please thank them on behalf of the Kenai Peninsula United Way: Barbara Jewel, June Harris, Debbie Tressler, Sami Eisenman, Leonor Fraser, Tyler Davis, Sharon Christopher, Rik Bucy, Pam Highley, Jane Stein, Karen Sefton, Melissa Galloway, Melody Spangler-Hatch, Nicky Szarzi, Nancy Lander, Bernie Wilson, Michael Tice, Sandy Miller, Junie Steinbeck and Michael Penland.

In addition to those giving their time personally, I want to thank College Heights Baptist Church for opening their doors as a venue for this event, Arby’s Soldotna for providing lunch for the hungry volunteers and Coca-Cola for the beverages.

Community dollars contributed during our annual campaign are a source of revenue for our 27 agencies. These dollars are comprised of corporate gifts, employee gifts through payroll deduction, corporate matches on employee contributions and individual personal gifts.

Our local Kenai Peninsula United Way Board of Directors is committed to keeping administrative and fundraising costs to 15 percent, therefore distributing more funds to those agencies in need of money.

Again, thank you to all who donated in the 2013 campaign as well as those that gave the gift of time and service.

Lisa J. Roberts, executive director 

Kenai Peninsula United Way
