You Can Help

Home / You Can Help

Welcome to the new You Can Help page!

You may be aware of our column in the Courier & Press that ran every Sunday and featured information that was submitted to United Way SWI from local agencies. The agencies’ requests fell into three categories:
• Items needed for the agency – see list below
• Items needed for clients – see list below
• Volunteers needed – click here for a current list of volunteer opportunities

As of February 25, the You Can Help column will no longer run in the Courier & Press, and starting on February 26, it will be provided here on our website.

  • How this page will work:
    • Any local nonprofit organization may send a list of equipment, furniture or supplies needed for offices or programs, items needed for clients, and volunteer opportunities with your organization.
    • You should send your items needed list to United Way SWI contact, Katie Sutton at
    o Please include the following information:
     Name of the organization
     Person of contact
     Phone and email
     Items you need (Office, volunteers, clients)
    • Please note that space is limited on this page. If your listing has been fulfilled, please let Katie Sutton know, or it will be taken off after 2 weeks to make room for other requests. You may resubmit the need if necessary.

Please contact Katie Sutton if you have any questions during this transition period from newspaper to web. We appreciate your patience and loyalty to our You Can Help page.
