Volunteers needed

The United Way's return to Baker County, after an absence of more than 20 years, bodes well for the county's nonprofit social service groups that rely on the generosity of local residents.

We urge Baker County residents to donate not only their dollars, but also their time.

United Way officials will make sure that the money Baker County residents give will go to organizations inside the county, such as: MayDay, which helps victims of domestic and sexual abuse; Court-Appointed Special Advocates, who look out for kids; and local food banks.

But United Way also is searching for Baker County residents who are willing to help decide which organizations have the greatest need for, and can do the greatest good with, those dollars.

United Way is inviting Baker County residents to volunteer to serve on a local budget committee. That committee doles out local donations.

United Way officials also intend to enlarge the 24-member board of directors to include members from Baker County.

Anyone interested in serving on either group should call Dawn Roe at 541-962-0306.
