CLARE/GLADWIN – United Way of Clare and Gladwin Counties recently held their Citizen Review Panels in each county, as volunteers came out to evaluate grant requests and make funding recommendations for 17 grant applications in Clare County, and 19 in Gladwin County.

The Citizen Review Panel is integral to what United Way does as an organization. The panels ensure that locally-raised money is distributed back into the Clare and Gladwin communities in a manner that allows maximum involvement for interested residents.

Citizen Review panel participants in the evening session of April 25 listen to a presentation by Sam Jones of Girls on the Run of Central Michigan. Participants heard presentations, completed score sheets, and made funding recommendations for a total of 19 grant applications in Gladwin County. Pictured clockwise from left are United Way of Clare and Gladwin Counties’ Mona Keeley, who facilitated both the Clare and Gladwin Citizen Review Panels, Jane Zdrojewski, Mark Schaefer, Norm Gage, Kim Shea, Jessi Bautell, and Debbie Good.

United Way of Clare and Gladwin Counties is grateful for the community members who came out to hear presentations and make recommendations. Their participation helps our communities Live United.
