Community Impact Teams Our Community Investment Process is vital to United Way. It guarantees accountability to all of our donors and also ensures your donation assists those in need in our community. We could not do it without the many volunteer Impact Team members who come to us from different businesses and groups across the area. These community-minded volunteers take their task of evaluating the Community Partners and programs very seriously within the areas of EDUCATION, INCOME & INDEPENDENCE and HEALTH. After the evaluations, volunteers make recommendations that are reviewed and approved by our local volunteer Board of Directors. A special thank you is extended to Board Member, Robin Sanford, for leading our 2011 Community Investment Process and our Impact Team leaders and members. EDUCATION

Service Days MLK “Day of Service” “MAKE IT A DAY ON, NOT A DAY OFF!” Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King’s great philosophy on helping others, North Carolina Wesleyan College partnered with United Way Tar River Region to host a volunteer service day for local communities. Participants spent most of their day off to serve meals at a soup kitchen, build a Habitat for Humanity home, clean up local parks and neighborhoods.

“Make a Difference” Day This day of volunteer action linked community service projects with volunteers across the Twin County region and local not-for-profit organizations. Approximately 120 volunteers were energized at the kick-off event held at the Edgecombe County Administration Building Auditorium in Tarboro, NC. Volunteers assisted agencies with painting, lawn care and minor repairs. It was a great opportunity for volunteers to become involved at a higher level within the local community.

Community Recycling & Shredding Events United Way Tar River Region joined efforts with the City of Rocky Mount and Keep America Beautiful to host two Community Recycling and e-shredding events.The national Keep America Beautiful initiated the America Recycles Day event to allow citizens to dispose of household waste safely, responsibly and conveniently FREE of charge. These days were set aside to educate and motivate people about the importance of recycling to our economy and for our environmental well-being.For both local events, there was an average of 200 participants from areas throughout Eastern North Carolina. All proceeds were contributed to United Way.
