Perhaps I am biased as the 2019 Community Impact Chair for United Way, but I believe that our annual Program Review process is the most important thing we do.
By Matt Bumstead, 2014 Rita Harmon Award Recipient
Like all the previous recipients of the Rita Harmon Volunteer Service Award, this year’s honoree, Norval Pollard, has done so much to make our community a better place for all, and has done it with no expectation of praise, and certainly with no expectation of recognition like this.
By Tom Vermillion, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lubbock
As we all know volunteers are extremely important not only to United Way but also to its 23 partner agencies. We couldn’t do what we do every day at our agencies without them.
By Doug Hensley, 2018 Campaign Chair
Since 1985, Lubbock Area United Way has presented the Campaign Volunteer of the Year Award to a volunteer who excelled in their commitment and dedication during the campaign. This year we want to recognize Kelsey Tubb.
United Way partnered again this year with the South Plains Homeless Consortium (SPHC) for the 2019 Point in Time Survey at the end of January. The survey helps stakeholders better understand the needs of Lubbock’s homeless population and will be used to acquire needed funding to assist homeless individuals and families in getting back on their feet.
