We believe a great volunteer has the passion to go above and beyond to make a difference. They see a need and they seek to fill it. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our community. They strengthen our community by increasing our capacity to identify and respond to human needs.

Volunteering creates ownership within our community and raises awareness of our assets and needs among people who live and work here. Volunteering also creates relationships at the institutional and personal level which are a vital part to the fabric of our community.

In an effort to give back to those who help us accomplish our mission of changing lives in Whitley County, United Way of Whitley County would like to help recognize individuals that demonstrate a dedication and commitment to building a better community through volunteerism.

Each nominee will be evaluated by a panel of involved citizens and community leaders based on the criteria listed below:

  1. Candidates must have performed their volunteer services in Whitley County
  2. Award consideration is based on volunteer services contributed to Whitley County during the past 12 months (July 2017-June 2018)
  3. Involvement of the nominee was active, not solely as a figurehead

Help us celebrate those who choose to LIVE UNITED and helped to change lives in Whitley County by taking action.

The announcement of the Volunteer of the Year recipient will be made at United Way of Whitley County’s Annual Day of Caring Event to be held on Tuesday September 25th at 7:30 am at the Whitley County 4H Fairgrounds.
