VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH: September 2017

Tiffany Huggins

City of Dayton

Tiffany Huggins LIVES UNITED by “excluding no one” as she takes part in the City of Dayton’s United Way campaign.  United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Tiffany as our Community Volunteer of the Month.

Having lived in Lima, OH and East Lansing, MI, Tiffany has lived in the Dayton area for 27 years.  She is a proud mother of four (ages 11 to 23), so, yes, she is busy!  She is a sales administrative assistant with the City of Dayton at the Dayton Convention Center and has worked there since 2001.  In 2005, she was asked to be on the city’s United Way campaign board, “and I’ve been there ever since.” She is a committee member and acts as a recording secretary, and during the campaign season she spends about two hours a week on campaign-related work.  She says that she is inspired by “the city as an organization…it’s exciting to work together toward a goal, and our significant contribution is deeply important.”  She inspires others by “having fun and showing it’s easy and rewarding.”  With so much experience, it’s also great to be helpful to the next chairperson who steps in.

“I don’t have a lot of time, with kids, but I can be effective in the position” says Tiffany. “I try to be helpful toward everyone – that’s how I was raised!”

United Way’s Suzzy Nandrasy says of Tiffany: “ She takes her role as a volunteer very seriously. She is meticulously organized and maintains a detailed history of the campaign. Tiffany is content working behind the scenes, and always credits success to her team. She is a pleasure to know!”

United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Tiffany Huggins as our Community Volunteer of the Month for September, 2017.
