United Way NSV: Literacy Volunteers Winchester Area
22 May 2020
We pre-recorded today’s conversation via Zoom for “United Way Day” with Elise from United Way of Northern Shenandoah Valley and her guests Mark Sieffert, Executive Director and Rebecca Gibson, Administrative & Development Coordinator for Literacy Volunteers Winchester Area.
Mark & Rebecca told us about the current operations of LVWA and how they’ve managed to pivot many of their classes to an online setting. Mark explained the various services offered by his organization that include citizenship classes, ESL classes, resume building and more. He also talked about COVID-19’s impact on his volunteer base and how the future of volunteering for the organization may change. We also discussed the recent impact grant approval Literacy Volunteers Winchester Area received from UWNSV and how it will help those participating in their various programs.
Elise gave us an update on the COVID-19 Relief Fund and explained that it’s still possible to donate to the fund. You can get more information about that here: https://www.unitedwaynsv.org/covid-19-relief-fund She also talked about the impact grant distribution process; how many local organizations were approved and what some of those monies will be used to better our community.
