Rod is the point person in guiding our efforts to build a strong coalition among a multitude of nonprofit agencies throughout Laramie County. His team researches organizations who request funding from United Way. If an agency receives funding from our local United Way, they are required to have goals and benchmarks in place to assess outcomes that are in line with our endeavors to build a stronger community in the specific areas of better health, a solid education for all children, and financial stability among each household. It is because of this thorough vetting process that the community can be assured that every dollar is being used wisely and morally as we enhance the lives of Laramie County residents who are in need.
Today, I give a tip of the hat to Colonel Rod Hottle and to all military veterans. Thank you for your service to our country!
