Community Conversations-November 9th
610 Independence Street
United Way of Southeast Missouri is asking citizens in Cape Girardeau County to participate in Community Conversations to guide the nonprofit’s next funding cycle.
Additional Community Conversations will be held in Perry County, Bollinger County, Scott County, and Jackson.
Each Community Conversation will be similar to a guided focus group with a facilitator seeking feedback from participants. All area residents are invited to attend and inform the nonprofit of needs in their community and gaps in services that will guide volunteers on United Way’s Community Investment Committee.
These committee members review every application for funding and determine the next group of partners and programs that United Way of Southeast Missouri (UWSEMO) will invest in and the percentage of revenue each will receive. By hosting Community Conversations in multiple communities, UWSEMO leaders and volunteers hope to gain valuable insight into how the United Way network can be more effective in helping people throughout Southeast Missouri.
Conversation will be held 5-7PM
Light snacks and beverages provided
Every attendee can receive free diapers and raffle ticket for a gift card to be drawn that evening
