MARSHFIELD, August 19, 2019— Marshfield Area United Way is excited to announce a new take on the role of the annual campaign drive chairs. The United Way Board of Directors will lead this year’s campaign.
“I am thrilled that we, as a Board, are the 2019 Drive Chairs,” stated Katy Zaleski, current Board Member. Zaleski continued, “I am extremely honored to work alongside and support this incredible team to raise awareness about the fantastic work Marshfield Area United Way and their partner programs are doing in our community”.
As Drive Chairs, Board members will be more engaged with United Way partners, volunteers and donors. Al Michalski, Board Treasurer stated, "This is a great opportunity to continue learning more about all of our partner programs as we grow together with our new Executive Director, Ashley (Winch), and our great staff, Krystal (Bowman), Cassie (Zopfi), and Ali (Luedtke), taking on new roles.”
“I feel we have an obligation to leave our communities a better place and caring for the most vulnerable members of our society is a critical component of that. The Marshfield Area United Way team epitomizes that mission to improve our community,” Zaleski added.
In 2019, Marshfield Area United Way is investing $577,000 into community programs that help make Marshfield a great place to live. Everyone deserves opportunities to achieve a quality education that leads to a stable job, family-sustaining income through all of life’s stages, good health and a safe home. This is only made possible through the generosity of the many businesses, organizations and individuals that support Marshfield Area United Way.
“It is an exciting time at United Way as we offer our neighbors a hand up from challenging situations. Together we can all play a role in improving our communities," Michalski added.
Marshfield Area United Way invites you to become part of the change. You can do so by giving through your workplace campaign, online at marshfieldareaunitedway.org, or in person or by mail at 156 S. Central Avenue, Marshfield, WI.
