NORMAN — The United Way of Norman is planning to officially launch a mobile app Monday for those who are interested or involved in the nonprofit.
Jed Dembowski, UW vice president of marketing and communications, said they still are figuring some things out as far as what they can do with the app since they are still new to the whole thing.
So far, the app will help individuals keep track of events and RSVP to events, take pictures and share them, post to the United Way wall, volunteer and more.
“We’re hoping to be able to collect stories from people about how United Way has helped them and why they give to United Way,” he said.
The app also allows individuals to connect with all of United Way’s social media, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Those who download the app can keep track of and get in touch with funded partners to see what they have going on, as well, Dembowski said.
The app is available for download for both Apple and Android users, but its official launch is Monday. The app was created by a University of Oklahoma graduate who wanted to help his community and hometown by doing something for a nonprofit, Dembowski said.
“We’re excited,” he said. “I think it’ll be a benefit to people in the community. We’re looking forward to what all we can do with it.”
