Grateful thanks to United Way for grant

In December of 2013, United Way of Snohomish County provided funding to help 11 local nonprofit agencies reduce intergenerational poverty. As volunteers for Lake Stevens Senior Center, we wish to publicly thank United Way for including our organization as a grant recipient. As a result, we are able to serve an additional weekly lunch to seniors in our community. In connection with this capacity-building grant, United Way includes several intensive classes throughout the year that provide training and guidance for the boards and staff of the grantee agencies. Thank you, United Way of Snohomish County volunteers and staff! We are pleased that you are partnering with us in serving the population of Lake Stevens.
