Description

Join United Way of Greater Toledo for its third quarter advocacy event, Answering Community Needs with 2-1-1.

Our short, 45-minute breakfast program will review United Way’s recent 2-1-1 transition to Gryphon Place in Kalamazoo, Michigan, how 2-1-1 can save taxpayer money by addressing nonemergent 9-1-1 calls, as well as other public policy initiatives we hope to accomplish to uplift this vital program.

Councilmember Sandy Spang will lead the conversation around the strengthening of a 2-1-1 / 9-1-1 partnership, as a way to save time and resources of fire, EMS and police respondents. See our full schedule below:

7:30 – 7:45 a.m., Registration, mingling and breakfast
7:45 – 7:50 a.m., Welcome – Wendy Pestrue, President & CEO, UWGT
7:50 – 8:00 a.m., Overview of 2-1-1 and our vision for 2-1-1’s future – Jill Bunge, Director of Community Impact
8:00 – 8:20 a.m., Building a 2-1-1 / 9-1-1 partnership – Councilmember Sandy Spang
8:20 – 8:30 a.m., 2-1-1 advocacy efforts – Lucas Stall, Manager of Public Affairs & Advocacy
