2014 Phil Covey Memorial Award

United Way of McLean County (UWMC) is now accepting applications for this year’s Phil Covey Memorial Award to be presented during ‘Day of Action’ in June. Since 1995 United Way of McLean County has presented an outstanding social service agency with the Philip Covey Memorial Award. Philip Covey was the beloved son of Harold Covey, a long-time United Way supporter and volunteer. Upon Philip’s untimely death in 1994, Harold established the memorial fund to honor his son’s memory through recognition of the hard work of dedicated non-profits in McLean County.’

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering strengthens communities by increasing their capacity to identify and respond to human needs. Volunteering creates ownership of the community, and raises awareness of its assets and needs among the people who live and work there. Volunteering also creates relationships at the institutional and personal level that are a vital part of the fabric of the community. That’s why United Way of McLean County has dedicated itself to mobilizing the power of volunteers to make advancements within Education, Income and Health.
