Three elected to Spokane Valley Partners board

— Spokane Valley Partners, a social services clearinghouse, announces the election of three familiar Valley residents to its board of directors. Those elected during the SVP board meeting on December 17 are:

• Richard Munson, who served on the Spokane Valley City Council from 2003-2009, including two years as mayor. Munson is twice retired: first as a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force and then as a stockbroker. He is a past president of downtown Spokane Rotary Club 21.

• Nancy Nelson, president of Spokane Valley-based Humanix, the region's leading temporary staffing service.

• Darla Sowl, Liberty Lake Branch manager for STCU, who has lived in the Valley for more than 20 years.

STCU, Humanix and the City of Spokane Valley all are longtime supporters of Spokane Valley Partners.

The new board members join existing SVP board members: Ann Miller (president), Dick Denenny (vice president), Bob Jayne (past president), Anne Martin (secretary), Rhonda Willey (treasurer), Taylor Demars, Jared Jones, Gail Kogle, Peggy Rudolph and Denise Swinney.

For more than 40 years, SVP has been the only comprehensive source of social services between the Spokane city limits and the Idaho border. In addition to its food bank, which this year distributed more than 1.5 million pounds of food, SVP operates these five ongoing programs: clothing bank; emergency assistance; protective payee services; telephone voice mail; and Baby O Baby, which provides baby care items to new moms. SVP also offers seasonal assistance in many ways.

Additionally, SVP provides a Valley home for the Spokane Regional Health District; SNAP; ValleyFest; ChangePoint, which provides services to the disadvantaged; Hearth Homes, which helps women and children find suitable homes; and Grins and Giggles Family Dentistry. Washington State University nursing students offer screenings at the center, and the Theater Arts for Children stages productions in its 150-seat theater. SVP operates in partnership with faith communities, local and state agencies, supporting businesses, service clubs, Second Harvest Food Bank and community volunteers.
