The Interlakes Area United Way is gathering its applications and requests for its 2013 allocations. Non-profit agencies in Lake, Miner, and Moody counties, who have programs that benefit people in the areas of health, education and welfare, are encouraged to apply. The United Way’s Lois Niedert of Madison says they want any group or agency that is eligible for the funding to make sure to apply.
The applications are due by July 27th. Niedert says that after that a subcommittee will review them and help determine how much the United Way will need to meet the requested needs. Last year, Niedert says, more than 30 agencies received funding.
Applications can be found on the Interlakes Area United Way website or by contacting Niedert.
Also this month, the United Way is helping host the Dakota Smiles Dental bus in Madison. Niedert says the bus is staffed by volunteers who provide free dental care for young people in need.
The Dakota Smiles Dental bus will be in the VFW parking lot in Madison July 23rd thru the 27th and Niedert says the volunteers who work on the bus will provide all kinds of dental care.
Preference for the bus will be given to residents in Lake, Miner, and Moody counties. If you would like to have an appointment, or get on the waiting list for the week, you can contact Mendy at ICAP in Madison at 256-6518.
Niedert says it cost the United Way 25-hundred dollars to sponsor the bus.
