“In a time when each employee has multiple responsibilities and time is no longer a luxury, conducting a United Way campaign is not a project receiving many volunteers,” said Wendy Cato, UW managing director.  “While the position of Campaign Coordinator is often an assignment, Jennifer Propst not only ran a fun, exciting and successful campaign but she volunteered immediately afterwards to run the next campaign.  Jennifer optimized the interoffice network, and she informed.  Jennifer just didn’t ask, she had fun, she offered prizes, and she engaged her cohorts at every possible corner.”

During 2013, the United Way’s partner agencies and their programs impacted a combined 24,266 individuals in areas of education, health, and family income.
