UWCA Word on the Street

So there have been some words on the street from the good old United Way Capital Area, specifically in reference to funding.

On Friday they announced who was going to receive funding and who was not. Sad to say folks, the Girl Scouts are not receiving any funding this year. We have been sad to hear this but are taking it as an opportunity to reach out to our supporters to meet a new need. With any luck, they will answer the call!

Today we had a press conference with several other area non profits who are suffering from this sudden loss of funding. The Austin Business Journal did a very brief piece and KVUE and FOX did a bit on the evening news. Hopefully this will call some attention to the need.
