United Way disbursements 2012.11.07

Nearly $2,000 in funding from the Lenawee United Way will be going to four Morenci programs.

The Lenawee United Way Board of Directors recently approved the program funding recommendations of the Community Fund Distribution committees.

The Morenci Fire Association will receive $414 for glove replacement; the Morenci Elementary School will receive $500 for winter weather wear for students in need of warm clothing;

Stair Public Library will receive $500 for the summer reading program; and the City of Morenci will receive $500 for the summer recreation program.

Each year, Lenawee United Way provides funds to non-profit programs in 10 communities through the Community Fund Distribution grants process. The funds available each year are based on dollars raised through Lenawee United Way’s annual fund-raising campaign.

The Community Fund Distribution process has been a part of the mission of Lenawee United Way as a way of reaching the needs specific to each community “to create a measurably better life for the people of Lenawee County.”
