“I work for United Way because I felt a call to serve those that are struggling in our community. While we at United Way will always support emergency needs in our community, we must find a way to end the cycle of generational poverty that many of our neighbors, family, and friends face. I believe United Way is in the best position to convene, catalyze, and change our community for the better. I consider it an honor to wake up every day and fight for our community.”
