Volunteer of the Month
VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
REGINA WHITENACK, WHITE ALLEN CHEVROLET
Regina Whitenack LIVES UNITED by “reaching into communities” in her work with White-Allen Chevrolet. United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize her as our Volunteer of the Month.
A Troy native, Regina moved away before returning to Troy with her husband, three dogs and a cat. She is the social media coordinator for White-Allen and also has a baking business.
Last year, Tim Allen Jr of White-Allen Chevrolet told his team that they really wanted to “do it up” for the holidays. This lead them to United Way, where they were hooked up with Christmas programming. For 2020, the White-Allen team sponsored Christmas for ten families, with toys and even some small appliances. Regina was the point person for these projects. Asked how she gets her team engaged she laughs and says “I boss them around!” She actually organizes competitions and generally tries to “make it fun.”
“Seeing the kids’ faces makes everyone smile.” Regina has also been involved with election work and loves to place groups from White-Allen at local non-profits, such as House of Bread.
According to Mike Squire, Associate Vice President of Resource Development with UWUDA, “Regina has been at the forefront of leading White Allen Chevrolet’s efforts to help us meet our mission of uplifting our neighbors. Regina works tirelessly to raise money, organize events, coordinate volunteers, and so much more. She truly embodies what it means to Give, Advocate, and Volunteer. Regina’s passion for giving back is evident in all she does and her impact is far reaching in our community.”
United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize Regina Whitenack as Volunteer of the Month for January 2021.
