United Way of San Juan County has awarded more than $78,000 to 16 non-profits in the county. The grants range from $560 to $17,400 to support 24 programs on Orcas, Lopez and San Juan islands. Grantees include programs for pre-school and elementary school children, senior assistance, hospice, prevention programs, family support, and others.

• Lopez Island Family Resource Center received over $16,000 for five programs.
• San Juan Island Family Resource Center received $17,400 for five programs.
• San Juan Island School District received over $11,200 for two programs.
• Five programs on Orcas Island received over $16,700.

In addition to the funds granted through the allocation process, a total of over $9,500 in designated contributions was distributed to these and six additional programs. For a complete list of supported programs and how to give, see our website at http://www.unitedway-sanjuancounty.org .

The mission of United Way of San Juan County is to enhance the ability of local agencies to meet vital needs of our community. “The needs of our community are accelerating,” said Bill Morrissey, Board President. “At a time of continuing economic downturn and dwindling public resources, our support to programs serving children, families and seniors in our community has never been more important.”
